Bill O'Reilly is returning to the cable news network that sacked him — as a guest.

The ousted host of Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" will appear on Sean Hannity's show tonight at 9 p.m.

The two TV personalities promoted the "Hannity" spot on Twitter, with O'Reilly billing the appearance as "an event" and flooding his feed with several reminders.

Fox News' top-rated broadcaster, who was fired in April in the wake of numerous sexual-harassment allegations, has been making the rounds to promote his latest alternate-history novel, "Killing England," and addressing his exit from the cable news network.

Timeline: The rise and fall of Bill O'Reilly

On the "Today" show last week, O'Reilly denied any wrongdoing and said his "conscience is clear." In his 42 years in the business, he said he never had any human-resources cases brought against him. He also declared that his firing was "a political and financial hit job" that resulted from sponsored boycotts and accused left-leaning advocacy groups of orchestrating his and Fox News' demise.

"Nobody's a perfect person, but I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years," O'Reilly said.
