Hillary Clinton will follow in Donald Trump’s footsteps and visit Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show,” NBC announced Tuesday.

The candidate seeking the Democratic presidential nomination will appear on the late-night program on Sept. 16, five days after Trump is set to plug his campaign on Sept. 11.

The interview will follow Clinton’s plans to appeal to daytime TV viewers by making a campaign stop on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this week. Although Thursday’s visit will be the former Secretary of State’s sixth time talking to DeGeneres on the air, it marks her first talk show appearance since announcing her candidacy back in April.

As TheWrap previously reported, every candidate appears to be hopping on the late-night train in an effort to increase their exposure, as GOP frontrunner Trump continues to dominate polls amidst constant attention from the media.

Clinton’s Democratic opponent Bernie Sanders will be among Stephen Colbert‘s second wave of guests on “The Late Show” next week, while Republican Jeb Bush will chat with the former “Colbert Report” host on Tuesday during the premiere of the revamped CBS late-night program.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stopped by “The Tonight Show” last month.
