Sarah Palin and Seth Meyers

The most anticipated showdown this week may not happen.

Contrary to rumors, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is not scheduled to appear on Thursday's primetime edition of Saturday Night Live, Seth Meyers told New York's Newsday.

"Of those specific rumors, there's no truth," he said. "We do have an open door policy, but there's nothing specific yet, but our window of opportunity is before the election. We'd love to have McCain and Obama on again, too. Our doors are always open."

That means we all have to wait a little bit longer before the Republican vice presidential hopeful comes glasses-to-glasses with her late-night doppelganger Tina Fey. But who thinks Meyers is just yanking our chain?

Nevertheless, even if Palin does not pop up this week, she could drop by on one of the next two Thursday SNLs, especially since a cameo had already been discussed, according to Meyers.

"We'd love to have her [and] we spoke to her earlier [before] the time Tina did her, and it seemed like something was going to work out," he said.

So why the hold-up?

"The schedule," he said. "They're all pretty busy."
