Fox’s Bill O’Reilly says his upcoming pre-Super Bowl interview with President Barack Obama is going to make history, reports The Huffington Post.

During an episode of “Happening Now” that aired Friday morning, O’Reilly said that his much-hyped interview, “will be the most watched interview in history. More people will see this interview than any other interview that’s ever been done in the history of mankind.”

TVNewser, which first reported on O’Reilly’s ambitious prediction, added that Barbara Walters holds the current interview record for her 1999 sit-down with Monica Lewinsky. The interview had 70 million viewers.

This will be O’Reilly’s first sit-down with Obama since he has assumed presidency. O’Reilly did interview then-candidate Obama during the 2008 presidential election.

The interview will air at 4:45 ET on Superbowl Sunday.
