Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Fox News' Bill O'Reilly continue their taboo romance

The love-hate relationship between Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," and Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly continues next week when Stewart visits "The O'Reilly Factor."

While the two may be on opposite ends of the political spectrum, there are no enemies when you have a book to promote. In this case, Stewart will be hawking his latest effort -- "Earth (The Book)" -- on O'Reilly's show on Sept. 22.

Stewart last went on O'Reilly's show in February. The two debated how Fox News covers the Obama administration, and the episode drew big ratings.

Since O'Reilly is giving Stewart access to his audience to promote his book, Stewart will return the favor. According to O'Reilly's website, Stewart will have the Fox News host on "The Daily Show" on Sept. 27.

I'd call this a "Flair & Balast" interview. Can't wait. They both play off each other very well and do have a mutual admiration for each other.

I would recommend all Fox Viewers to watch The Daily Show so they could actually get factual news.

Nothing sucks more on cable than watching these two on each other's show. A testament to missed opportunity and guffawing. Pointless.

how come jon stewart never talks about earth the book on the daily show billo mentions pinheads and patriots in every segment. hee hee. should be fun to watch.

Oh that's rich - Jon Stewart and Steve Colbert are not eminating Glenn Beck they're simply calling out his crazyness - his fear mongering. As for the only material they have is O'Reilly and Beck - not true...they go after Boehner, and Mitch (the turtle) McConnell and that's because you give them so much material. they are spot on when they point out how truly nasty and ugly you both are. Oct 2nd and Oct 30 is when the true americans will speak out. Oh, by the way...how come we didn't hear any climate change jokes this summer?
