Kim Kardashian celebrated the news on Wednesday that she would host an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

But Will & Grace star Debra Messing seemed to be puzzled by Kim's high-profile gig in a tweet fired off later in the day.

The 53-year-old comic actress seemed to wonder if the 40-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star would fit in with other more traditional performers.

Live From New York! Kim Kardashian, Jason Sudeikis Tapped as 'SNL' Hosts

  Live From New York! Kim Kardashian, Jason Sudeikis Tapped as 'SNL' Hosts Live From New York! Kim Kardashian, Jason Sudeikis Tapped as 'SNL' HostsThe NBC sketch show announced its first four hosts and musical guests via social media on Wednesday, September 22, ahead of the October 2 premiere. Owen Wilson and Kacey Musgraves will open the season, followed by Kim Kardashian and Halsey on October 9.

'Am I missing something?' she added.

Although the sitcom star added flatteringly that Kim was a 'cultural icon,' it wasn't clear if she was shading Kim for not be a performer, or for not having anything new to promote.

Although her long-running reality series KUWTK came to an end back in June, she isn't exactly giving up on reality stardom.

At Disney’s Investors Day earlier this year, it was announced that the family's new reality content would likely premiere later this year, so she may be ready to make an announcement by the time she hosts SNL.

In April, her mother Kris Jenner told the Wall Street Journal Magazine that the family hadn't 'really nailed down the exact format yet,' though they were 'working on it.'

'We’ll be on Hulu and hopefully thriving,' she said of the outlook for the next ten years, adding they would be 'doing what we love to do and being exactly where we’re supposed to be.'

Kim has also added that Scott Disick, who was one of the cast members who opposed ending KUWTK, will be joining the family for the new Hulu content.

Earlier this month, she told Ellen DeGeneres that she also hoped her sister Kourtney Kardashian's beau Travis Barker would also join them for filming.

The series is likely hoping for a ratings bump after it received its lowest ratings in a decade back in March, according to Showbiz 411.

However, much of that ratings slump is likely due to the ongoing pandemic, and several other TV shows have experienced particularly poor ratings since last year.

Owen Wilson will be hosting the season opener on October 2 with Kacey Musgraves performing, while Ted Lasso star and recent Emmy winner Jason Sudeikis will host the October 23 episode.

Debra was most recent seen on the revival of her iconic sitcom Will & Grace, which debut in 2017 and ended its second run in April 2020.
