Get ready for debate season. On October 3, President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney will square off in their first of three highly anticipated presidential debates. But just three days after that event, a showdown of perhaps even more entertaining proportions will take place: Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly locked in the Thunderdome.

OK, they won't actually be locked in, and it won't actually be a Thunderdome, but it WILL be a full, 90-minute, presidential-style debate and you'll be able to stream it online for free.

Billed as "The Rumble in an Air-Conditioned Auditorium," the debate between the golden boys of the Right and Left will go down at George Washington University on October 6. It will be moderated by CNN's E.D. Hill and tickets to be a part of the audience are being sold for just $4.95 (50 percent of profits will be donated to charity).

To watch what is certain to be the funniest, if not most important, of the October debates for free and from the comfort of your own home, just point your browser here at 8 PM ET on debate day.
