The first family is a "Modern Family"

President Obama revealed in an interview with People Magazine that the ABC comedy hit Modern Family is also a hit with the Obama family.

"For the girls and me, Modern Family, that's our favorite show," the President says, adding that he's "a little darker" in his TV habits, listing Boardwalk Empire and Homeland as his must-sees, other than sports.
