The Republican presidential contender will make a cameo appearance this week on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," a comedy venue that most recently has been focused on the ongoing Democratic presidential contest.

Aides traveling with McCain in the Pacific Northwest said the Arizona senator will appear on the program, to be hosted by comedian Steve Carell, although they were mum about the details of his sketch.

Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton have both appeared and been lampooned on the program in recent months. McCain, meanwhile, has been on the show one time previously.

During his weekend in New York, McCain also plans a series of media interviews, including one with Glamour magazine.
