Fox News uberstar Bill O'Reilly, host of the conservative talk show The O'Reilly Factor, announced that he and Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central's news satire program The Daily Show, will debate each other in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 6.

“I feel so strongly about this that I’m teaming up with my pal Jon Stewart to do a 90-minute debate on those and other vital issues,” O’Reilly said.

It's called "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium."

Viewers will be asked to pay $4.95 to live stream the event.

Stewart said in a statement, “I’m excited to debate Mr. O’Reilly. I believe this will be a very enjoyable night for fans of our programs, political junkies, partisans and people who just enjoy yelling.”
