Hillary Clinton will make her second pilgrimage as a 2016 presidential hopeful to “The Tonight Show” on Jan. 14, the same day as the next Republican debate.

Clinton, who is currently the Democratic frontrunner for the office, will also appear on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show just three nights after GOP candidate Donald Trump makes his return visit to the program and two nights after President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

The former Secretary of State visited “Tonight Show” in September. The episode featured a segment that made fun of her outspoken Republican rival as Fallon, dressed as Trump, carried on a fictitious phone conversation with Clinton. The appearance gave Fallon a ratings victory in the young adult demo over rivals Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” on CBS and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on ABC.

The next GOP debate airs earlier in the evening of Jan. 14 on Fox Business Network. The moderators are Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo.
