Obama Plans Back-to-Back-to-Back TV Appearances Sunday
It’s going to be awfully hard to avoid President Obama on television this Sunday.
The President is going to appear on seventeen Sunday shows – SEVENTEEN – to press his case for health care, White House officials disclosed. That will be a record. The previous mark of eleven different shows is one day is held by the late Charles Nelson Reilly.
Mr. Obama is going to appear on This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, Meet the Press on NBC, Face the Nation on CBS, and Fox NFL Sunday. Later in the day, he will be making cameo appearances on SpongeBob SquarePants (Nickelodeon), Larry King Live (CNN), Ace of Cakes (Food Network), Masterpiece Mystery (PBS), Family Guy (Fox), The Soup (E!), Tool Academy (MTV) and House Hunters (HGTV).
In an episode of Cops, President Obama will be dragged shirtless from a suburban Las Vegas trailor park demanding to be taken to a single-payer emergency room. On a special edition of This Old House (PBS) Obama will team with 43 SEIU members and 11 Democrat members of Congress to remove an incandescent light bulb from a maternity ward.
The President's final appearance of the day will be offering an "Obama Collection" of knives and fighting swords on local stations nationwide. Newsmakers in the past have managed to pull off the unlikely feat of hitting the big three Sunday interview shows on CBS, NBC and ABC. But this is a presidential first.
If there’s one thing this White House doesn’t seem worried about, it is that Americans will get tired of seeing President Obama. His TV marathon will come after the speech on Wall Street today and a rally in Maryland later this week.
