PLANO, Texas (CNN) – Mike Huckabee will make a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, the show’s first episode since the writers’ strike ended.
It will be hosted by former SNL head writer Tina Fey with Carrie Underwood as the musical guest. Huckabee will appear in a skit and gave it a modest promotion in Plano, Texas on Wednesday. “Be sure and watch that,” he encouraged reporters before catching himself, “let me find out what the skit is then I’ll tell you whether I want you to watch it or not.”
Huckabee is a regular on the late night show circuit but this will be his first appearance on SNL. Barack Obama also made a special appearance in November and John McCain hosted the show in 2002.
