Sarah Palin to appear on 'Tonight Show'


Sarah Palin will make a surprise appearance on "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" Friday night.

Security was thick around the NBC stage Friday afternoon, while the former vice presidential candidate was hurriedly rehearsing a skit.

Palin, who ensures high TV ratings wherever she goes, was a last-minute booking for NBC.

Sources say members of the NBC audience were led outdoors when first Palin arrived for rehearsals in order to keep her appearance a secret from them.

NBC Friday evening released information about Palin's visit.

"Sarah Palin made a rare late night television appearance on Friday when she surprised 'The Tonight Show' studio audience by interrupting an interpretive reading by William Shatner of her new autobiography 'Going Rogue'," the network said. "Palin walked out in the middle of Shatner's performance and gave him a taste of his own medicine by reading passages from his autobiography 'Up Till Now'."
