While Hillary Clinton has largely shied away from big TV interviews as of late, NBC announced Tuesday the former Secretary of State and First Lady is scheduled to make her first late-night TV appearance since announcing her bid for the White House in April.

Clinton will be interviewed by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Sept. 16, just a few days after GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s appearance on Sept. 11.

Hillary’s sit down interview with ABC News airs Tuesday night, and her appearance on The Ellen Show runs on Sept. 10.

Clinton appears to be stepping up her TV game ahead of the first Democratic Party presidential debate on Oct. 13.

The Democrat frontrunner has seen a steady dip in recent polling, in the wake of her handling of several big name scandals, including her handling of classified emails, for which she is currently the subject of an FBI investigation.

Clinton has also dodged questions about accepting money through her foundation, and her State Department’s handling of the security at the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, for which four Americans, including ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed on September 11, 2012.

It is unlikely Fallon will press Clinton on these and other scandals, as the host is known for taking it easy on Democrats.
