Since Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live at the beginning of November, NBC is offering equal air time to other Republican candidates.

Trump appeared on-camera for just over 12 minutes on November 7, so NBC is proposing giving candidates 12-minute time slot between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Nov. 27 and 12 minutes during the Saturday Night Live time period on Saturday Nov 28, Variety reports.

Candidates John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Mike Huckabee and Jim Gilmore had all requested equal time after Trump’s appearance. According to Variety, at least two campaigns have received the offer and are currently considering it.

FCC regulations call for equal opportunities granted to qualified candidates for public office, which enabled the candidates to request 12 minutes of airtime on an NBC station, though does not mean they would appear on Saturday Night Live.

Trump garnered the biggest ratings for the sketch comedy show since 2012.
