Sources working on the production tell TMZ that the comedy legends have been helping Kim decide what to put in her monologue as well as helping her with certain skits.
Kim’s estranged husband Kanye West has also been supporting her as she prepares for her SNL debut.
A source told Page Six: “Kim is nervous about hosting SNL. It’s a big challenge but she is determined to be a success.
“Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show.”
In the teaser video for the show, the reality star says: “Hi, I’m Kim Kardashian West and I’m hosting SNL with musical guest Halsey.”
In the joke clip, cast member Cecily Strong jokes that the trio should form a brand new girlband – a suggestion that was quickly shot down by Halsey.
Kim goes on to tell Cecily she already had been shut down when asking about the idea backstage. “Ok, you could hear me,” Cecily says. “I wasn’t sure ’cause security had me in a headlock.”
The SKIMS founder is later asked whether she is nervous about her new duties.
“Why? I don’t have to write sketches do I?” Kim asks.
She is then told by producers that she won’t need to, or even learn lines, because she’s got cue cards to read off.
Kim then asks: “Everyone else won’t look as good as me will they?,” with Cecil replying: “No, absolutely not.”
Kim replies with a smile, as she says: “This is so easy.”
Rehearsals for the show started earlier this week and Kim kept her fans up to date with events on Instagram.
Her friends and family have been sharing their support for her as she prepares to take on hosting duties.
