Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has agreed to host Saturday Night Live next month.

NBC said the former Celebrity Apprentice host will be the headliner of the Nov. 7 show. It's the second time he has hosted the venerable comedy institution; he was on the show in April 2004.

Trump has been ratings gold for nearly every television outlet he's graced since his candidacy took off this summer, the main reason behind record viewership for the two Republican candidates' debates in August and September.
