Chart-topping hip-hop artist Kanye West and NBA superstar LeBron James have signed on to headline “Saturday Night Live’s” 33rd season premiere in New York. This marks the second time West will perform on an “SNL” season opener, NBC said. The first episode of the new season of the sketch comedy show is slated to air this Saturday with James, a forward for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, playing host. James made his TV debut in July when he hosted the ESPYs Award Show, for which he received very good notes from his co-host comedian Jimmy Kimmel. Source: United Press International.
