Even the leader of the free world needs his DVR.
He just got it installed, according to People Magazine, and on it are a pair of premium cable dramas. President Obama loves Showtime’s critically acclaimed new spy thriller Homeland, starring Claire Danes, and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
As for what he watches with the kids?
With its multi-cultural, 21st Century appropriate casting, Modern Family is the pick. Not just because it’s a good answer, either – the show is pretty darn funny.
“For the girls and me, Modern Family, that’s our favorite show,” the Prez says.
Asked if they lets daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, use Facebook, Barack and Michelle Obama say they do not, but that it is not a hard decision to enforce.
Their theory is, “Why would we want to have a whole bunch of people who we don’t know knowing our business? That doesn’t make much sense,” she says.
But when the First Lady points out the relatively young ages of their daughters, the President laughs and adds, “We’ll see how they feel in four years.”
