NBC is playing coy about presidential hopeful John McCain appearing on tomorrow's Saturday Night Live.
The host is actor Ben Affleck.
The underdog presidential candidate is competing with media savvy Barack Obama's infomercial and appearance that dominated the airwaves in the last week.
Ben Affleck, an outspoken Obama supporter, is this week's host.
Two weeks ago, McCain's running mate, Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, made an appearance on the show and did a pas de deux with her SNL doppelgänger, Tina Fey.
The episode was SNL's highest rated in 14 years, averaging 14 million viewers.
