Carrie Fisher‘s 1978 appearance as host of “Saturday Night Live” will re-air tonight at 10 p.m., the show announced on its Twitter account.

The vintage episode originally aired on Nov. 18, 1978 with The Blue Brothers as the musical guest.

Fisher died on Dec. 27 several days after going into cardiac distress on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was 60.
