Daily News gossip Ben Widdicombe reports:

Preview copies of the next season of “The Sarah Silverman Program,” to air next month, are already raising eyebrows.

In one of the first installments, the comedian gets a rise out of wearing blackface.

“The theme is, Sarah is rejected from a club because she’s a Jew,” says a source familiar with the episode.

“She says to her black waiter, ‘There’s nothing harder than being a Jew.’ The waiter says, ‘Oh yeah? Try being black for a day.’ So they switch places.”

Let’s hope it’s funnier than when Ted Danson tried it with Whoopi Goldberg.
