Save the Date November 7th: Donald Trump to Host SNL

Donald Trump will host “Saturday Night Live” on the evening of November 7. Plan to stay up late.

Trump also hosted "SNL" in April 2004.
As this story mentions, that likely means that NBC will be required to give equal time to other Republican presidential candidates. “Equal time” is still in the law, although it doesn’t apply to “bona fide news programs”.
However Saturday Night Live doesn’t really qualify as a news show; it is entertainment. As the story explains, NBC doesn’t need to give other candidates a chance to be on Saturday Night Live; it just needs to give some free time. Thanks to Paul Weich for the news.
