Well, it’s the big night: Stephen Colbert gets to sit down twice with the man he calls “Papa Bear,” Bill O’Reilly — first on “The Factor” on Fox and then later hosting him on his own “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.

But the two have met already, in a manner of speaking.

Shortly after the launching of the “Colbert Report,” O’Reilly visited Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show.” There he complained (joking?) about the “the French guy” who followed Stewart. Here’s the segment, as a warmup to the main event tonight.

No video for round two yet, from Comedy Central, but it opened with Colbert making a sex harassment crack, which couldn’t have gone over too well with Bill. When he displayed a copy of the new book O’Reilly was flacking, it had a “30% off” sticker over Bill’s face. Later, Bill claimed he was not actually a tough guy, he was rather “effete,” it was all just an act. Colbert, straight-faced, replied, “If YOU are an act, what does that make me?”
