The Obamas' Greatest TV Moments

No first family has been as TV-friendly as the Obamas, who have appeared on daytime, primetime, and late-night shows — usually with an important policy or cause to promote and always down to have a good time. As Barack and Michelle Obama prepare to step away from the spotlight, let's look back at some of their most entertaining moments on television.   Evolution of Mom Dancing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon The appearance was part of a wide promotional push for the Let's Move campaign, but all that matters is that the first lady of the United States did the Dougie.   Leslie Meets Michelle on Parks and Recreation Amy Poehler, flawless queen of comedy, did most of the work here, but Michelle Obama was a fairly natural and charismatic guest.   "Ew!" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon The first lady's appearance was enough to make up for Will Ferrell rocking a pre-teen girl's tank top.   POTUS Visits Between Two Ferns President Obama was surprisingly game and delivered a sick Hangover 3 burn.   Michelle Meets Elena on Billy on the Street Arguably the strangest choice the Let's Move team made was sending Michelle Obama into a supermarket with Big Bird and Billy Eichner. And Elena!   President Obama Gets Mean on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Searching for mean tweets directed at any major political figure can lead down a truly dark and depressing path, but Jimmy Kimmel's team always finds the right mix of rude and ridiculous.   Adam and Jamie Go to Washington on Mythbusters A president who's into science? What a delight.   POTUS Slow Jams the News on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Another mic drop.   FLOTUS Sings on The Late Late Show with James Corden The Let Girls Learn campaign saw Michelle Obama promoting a charity single featuring Missy Elliott, Janelle Monae, and Kelly Clarkson. So why not sing some karaoke with late-night TV's newest James?   Michelle Obama Hits CVS on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Ellen introduces the first lady to boxed wine. (We're all gonna need some soon.)   div.post p { text-align: justify; }
