WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin will sit down with Oprah Winfrey the day before her new memoir hits bookstores, Harpo announced Tuesday.

The former Alaska governor will make the appearance on Oprah on November 16 to talk about her highly anticipated tell-all, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Palin has never before appeared on the popular daytime talk show. Last December, Winfrey said she had invited her on the show to discuss the election, but suggested at the time that Palin had instead chose other interviewers.

"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over... I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn't talk to me," Oprah told the show Extra last year.

    Perfect venue for a book release. She won't get asked any tough questions with Oprah. Like the REALLY tough question Katie Couric asked "Ms. Palin, could you name any case brought before the Supreme Court other than Roe v. Wade?" Tough question for the person running to UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION, right? And for the first person who can tell me the Supreme Courts ROLE in the judicial system I'll give you a biscuit. LOL

    Oprah ... you are simply being used by the Palin system to promote her book

    I hope your ratings DUMP on that day, but I doubt they will, your devotees are exactly that, and it is a shame you have now allowed yourself and your following to be used by this loser

    Palin will use anyone she can for her self promotion

    Wonderful. Filling an hour of airtime with hot air to promote a book that is full of hot air. If we don't have global warming now we surely will after that. Who wants to hear her empty chatter?

    I believe Oprah will be courteous and non-combative, and Sarah will get a chance to broaden her appeal. I think Oprah's ratings will soar, and a good percentage of her audience will give Sarah more respect in the future. A win-win situation for all concerned!

    Fantastic! I can't WAIT to watch this train wreck. I smell another Tina Fey guest spot on SNL.

    Sarah again will look bad and blame the poor interview on the tough nail-biting questions from Oprah.

    Sarah Palin is all about making the big buck and she will step on anyone that gets in her way.

    well all you sara haters can look forward to nov. 16,,2009 . say how stupid she is call her all the bad names you can think of .She will enjoy the help to sell her book. Let hope MSNBC NBC CBS ABC will help with the name calling. Fox will back sara if the white house has not bar them from being a new station. also the supreme court may rule on the right of the poor people in cuba so you all can bash bush some more. the thing that happen on 9/11/01 will be put on the back burner and we may pay the intern people some money for holding them with our cause.

    Oprah, this is a BIG mistake. This woman is totally ignorant, totally racist and she is one of the biggest welfare queens out there. My only hope is you don't promote this book. If you do, I will never respect you again.

    Sincerely,

    A Fan

    Wasn’t she revered for turning a cold shoulder to Oprah?...

    If Oprah picks this book for her Book Club, I'll puke. I'm surprised Oprah is lowering herself to Palin's level. Disappointing. I guess ratings matter. But will people be tuning in to listen or for comedy relief?

    I wonder if Orpah will pander as usual. Maybe she'll get a Miss Wasila '82 wig like she did when Tina Turner was on her show or drool on her like she does on the Obamas, or maybe she'll explain how she has to stick her nose into things she knows little about and doesn't take the time to fact -check like she does with books and child molesters in her school. Perhaps she can get The Rogue Wonder to go on the road with her to try to convince the world that Chicago would be a groovy place to hold the Olympics.

    Or maybe she could just shut up! That would be significant change!
