Since January 20, the celebrity gossip craze has been Michelle Obama fashion – what fancy designers and average brands the First Lady wears, and so on.
But what about what the President watches on TV?
Well, according to TV Guide, the Commander-in-Chief’s television tastes include sports, Hannah Montana and – above all else – Vincent Chase.
HBO’s Entourage is the Barack Obama’s favorite show, which is appropriate, as Ari Gold was inspired by real-life agent Ari Emanuel, the brother of Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. So how much does Obama like Entourage?
“[W]e would have these Sunday night campaign conference calls at the same time as Entourage,” press secretary Robert Gibbs said.
“I remember one time I e-mailed him because the call was scheduled for the last 15 minutes of Entourage and I said, ‘Just be late and we can just watch Entourage and still get on and do the call. And it worked. We got to see Entourage.”
The commander-in-chief was also a fan of The Wire. Last year, he named Omar, a gay drug dealer, as his favorite character because he’s “fascinating.”
For more family-friendly fare, Barack Obama takes in Hannah Montana and SpongeBob SquarePants with his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.
Not surprisingly, the basketball aficionado can’t be without his ESPN either. Obama, who correctly predicted that the University of North Carolina would win the NCAA championship in his pool, watches SportsCenter religiously.
Hey, beats the local news, right?
