Sure President Obama is busy running the country by day, but at night, the POTUS still finds time to watch a few shows that he and his family make sure to DVR.
Obama opened up to TV Guide about his viewing habits, revealing "I am a big fan of 'Homeland' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' and I think 'The Wire' is one of the greatest shows of all time — and I confess I am an avid watcher of 'SportsCenter.'"
But the President hasn't appointed anyone to be in charge of recording his favorite shows — other than his daughters.
"For the most part, we program our own shows on our DVR, but it wasn't always this way," he says. "Sasha had to teach Michelle and me how to program it because we didn't know how to do it ourselves."
Here's what Obama has to say about his must-see TV:
1. "Parks and Recreation": Obama says the NBC comedy starring Amy Poehler gives him "a good laugh." In March, series co-star Aziz Ansari attended a fundraiser event in New York City and Obama informed him that he has a fan in the White House. "Aziz Ansari ... now this is big because Malia is a big 'Parks and Recreation' fan," the president said at the fundraiser . "So having Aziz here is like the only thing she thinks is worth me doing. I want to thank him for what he said earlier. I know he's backstage, but I just want to say that I have more Twitter followers than you, man."
2. "Modern Family": " Michelle and the girls and I love watching ' Modern Family,'" the President told TV Guide, while the First Lady revealed to Us magazine that she recorded the show "to catch up on after the election."
3. "Boardwalk Empire": "I am a big fan," Obama says of the HBO prohibition-era drama.
4. "Downton Abbey": Michelle Obama has an advanced copy of the show's new season, according to Us magazine.
5. "SportsCenter": "I confess I am an avid watcher of "SportsCenter," Obama told TV Guide, adding "We usually watch it when we're working out. Michelle also likes watching 'The Biggest Loser' because the contestants inspire her."
6. "Homeland": "'Homeland' is my favorite TV show," the Prez told Us magazine of the Showtime hit starring Claire Danes.
