Samantha Bee's TBS special Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner hasn't even aired on Saturday night and it's already getting people talking. This is Samantha Bee, after all, and reporters are letting people in on what happened during the taping earlier. The A-listers flocked to Samantha Bee's Correspondents' Dinner show and one "special guest" in particular is certain to bring the house down. During the program, which will roast President Trump and honor journalists, Bee called upon a special someone to reprise his role as George W. Bush. Will Ferrell, welcome to Samantha Bee's non correspondents' dinner.

According to Huffington Post, Ferrell's introduction alone will reportedly give viewers a taste of how the night will go. Poking fun at cable news' overdramatic tendencies, chyrons reading, “BREAKING: SPECIAL GUEST’S PLANE IS ON THE TARMAC” and views of an empty podium lead to Ferrell's ultimate reveal. Ferrell, who's known for countless impressions of people ranging from Harrison Ford to Alex Trebek, took on a fan favorite by revisiting former president George W. Bush. That artistry alone is reason to tune in, is it not? HuffPo's reporter has given audiences a little preview of the jokes Ferrell has in store and they're looking pretty promising. The first is a Titanic reference.

"It’s like being on the Titanic,” Ferrell said during the taping. "[Journalists] are playing the violin while the ship goes down.” Ferrell is at it again, not like he went anywhere. Until Bee's special airs, revisit the actor's flawless Bush impression now:
