Critic reviews for Kim Kardashian West; Halsey

In terms of playing to a host's strengths, this episode was honestly one of the better ones solely on that. Kardashian West hit her cues, never fumbled a line, and was able to deliver in pre-tapes.

All in all, it was a very bad episode of SNL, but I'll give Kim Kardashian this: She was game, and she was open to making fun of herself and her family a lot.

All of that rehearsal time paid off for Kim... she trusted the SNL writers, and she read them all of their punchlines with aplomb!

The woman did something nobody thought she could and, because of her obvious efforts, didn't embarrass herself. I found myself rooting for her.

There was an air of Kardashian World insularity that hung over the episode; this felt like an episode for the Kim Faithful (and/or her friends and family) more than something for comedy fans.

As an exercise in public relations, it was the ultimate triumph for a woman often regarded as a punch line. But for a comedy show known for skewering the rich, famous and unworthy, it was a resounding belly flop.
