In this silly promo video for the show, which airs live on Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC, the pair try hosting a circus-themed party for children.
Paisley, 39, wearing a white balloon hat on his head, tells a young boy, “Here, I made you a monkey,” only to have the child kick him in the shin and shout, “I hate monkeys!”
Meanwhile, another child is mummifying Underwood, 29, with streamers, as she sighs: “Maybe we should just stick to hosting the CMA Awards.”
