Kim Kardashian worked out 20 grueling HOURS and focused on laser before SNL concert – .


Saturday Night Live is hopeful that Kim Kardashian’s star power can attract a desperately needed increase in viewers, after this season’s opener gets the lowest ratings in the show’s history.

While the reality TV star’s upcoming hosting gig has garnered a lot of buzz, it will take a ton of eyes to bounce back from last week’s dismal odds.

According to Nielsen, the Season 47 premiere is now the lowest ranked episode among The show’s key demographic – adults between the ages of 18 and 49.

The October 2 episode of first-time host Owen Wilson scored 0.92 in the coveted 18-49 age group and 4.9 million total viewers, meaning just 0 92% of that group watched the show, according to Nielsen.

Magnet of evaluations? SNL is hoping that this weekend’s host Kim Kardashian can help them bounce back from a dismal start to the season, which earned some of the lowest ratings in the show’s history.

The record for the episode with the fewest viewers of all time is still held by Scarlett Johansson, but it was not a season premiere. His episode, which aired on May 2, 2015, was watched by 4.7 million viewers.

SNL producer Lorne Michaels has been courting Kardashian for some time.

In August, it was reported that Kim and her mom Kris Jenner met Michaels at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills hotel.

“Lorne wants her to do the show,” an insider told KNEWZ, noting that Michaels was hoping Kardashian would premiere.

Last season, Saturday Night Live rose from second to highest as the number one comedy show among all broadcast and cable networks.

But ratings and viewership for the show have declined in recent years.

The the new season opened with a skit poking fun at President Joe Biden and the division within the Democratic Party, but after four years of endless material provided to the show by President Trump, the show has come under fire last season for being easy on President Biden.

This weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Kim Kardashian and featuring musical guest Halsey airs on October 9 at 8:30 p.m. PST / 11:30 p.m. EST.
