Who knew the President had time to watch TV?

At last night's Radio & TV Correspondent's dinner, Pres. Barack Obama had some fun at his own expense, after talking about Brian Williams' Inside the Obama White House on NBC.

"Inside the Obama White House is my favorite new show," he joked. "There's just something compelling about the main character. The show has been such a hit that all of you guys want to come and tape one in my house."

Obama went on to draw giggles from the audience with shows like "Dancing With the Czars" and then, "Given the fiscal crisis in California, these shows will all be competing directly with Governor Schwarzenegger's new reality series, I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"

"That's how I feel tonight," he concluded with a grin.
