Hillary Clinton to Visit Jimmy Fallon on 'Tonight Show'
Hillary Clinton is upping her TV appearances. As the 2016 presidential race continues to build momentum and the first Democratic debate approaches, the party's current front-runner is stopping by The Tonight Show.
NBC announced Tuesday morning that Clinton will appear be interviewed by Jimmy Fallon in Studio 6B on Sept. 16. A late-night first for the former Secretary of State since announcing her White House bid in April, it follows a flurry of of other high-profile TV spots.
Clinton's sit-down with ABC News' David Muir is set to air Tuesday night, and she will also appear on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talker during the Sept. 10 episode. Prior to this week, Clinton has largely shied away from big TV interviews.
Fallon certainly won't suffer a lack of topics to bring up with Clinton. He's interviewing controversial GOP candidate Donald Trump on Sept. 11. (New Jersey governor Chris Christie appeared at the end of August.)
Late night is getting very political as both parties look to start thinning the herd in anticipation of next year's primaries. Jeb Bush is set to sit down with Stephen Colbert on his CBS Late Show debut Tuesday night, and rumored potential presidential candidate Vice President Joe Biden is booked for Sept. 10.
