Hillary Clinton is completing the late-night trinity, following her appearances on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The former secretary of state and current frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination will be a guest on the ABC show's Thursday, Nov. 5, episode. It marks her first appearance on Kimmel since throwing her hat into the ring earlier this summer.

Kimmel has upped his political bookings of late. Clinton's fellow democratic hopeful, Bernie Sanders, appeared on Wednesday's episode of Live. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump was due to make an appearance of his own this week, but backed out for another obligation.

Trump, speaking on cable news earlier this week, said that he would reschedule the appearance — but a date has yet to be set.

The wave of political bookings, which seemed to get off to an earlier-than-normal start for this election cycle, has been prompted by several notable ratings bumps (particularly for Trump) and the ensuing media coverage around the appearances.
