As someone who covers television for a living, I am somewhat concerned about what the president of the United States watches.
Drawing from various sources, not directly from Barack Obama, The New York Times reported the following eight shows are his favorites:
• "Boardwalk Empire"
• "Breaking Bad"
• "Downton Abbey"
• "Game of Thrones"
• "House of Cards"
• "Modern Family"
• "Parks and Recreation"
They're all good shows. Some are great shows. Half are on my 2013 top-10 list; all of them were among those I considered.
Obama has good taste in television shows.
(By the way, this is a TV column. This is by no stretch of the imagination about politics or policy.)
