WATCH: President Obama Admits He's Not 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'

In a new Tonight Show interview, the president says he doesn't like the show -- despite the fact that he's never seen an episode!

Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, might be keeping up with the Kardashians, but President Barack Obama is not. The commander in chief stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday, and told host Jay Leno that he doesn't like the E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians -- despite the fact that he's never seen an episode!

"I have not seen the show," Obama, 50, admitted.

"Ah, so you're making a judgment without ever having seen the show," Leno teased.

"I'm probably a little biased against reality TV, partly because there's this program on C-Span called Congress," Obama joked. "But, no, I have not seen the show." (Watch an excerpt from the interview below.)
 



If you're wondering why the president and Leno were even talking about the Kardashians, here's a little background: Earlier this month, Michelle Obama revealed to iVillage that her daughters like to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians on weekends. However, the 47-year-old first lady added that her husband "doesn't like that as much" as some of the other programming his kids consume. Michelle, however, argued that as long as her daughters take away the right lessons from the show, she is okay with them watching whatever they want.

A source close to the Kardashians said that the reality family was "flattered" that the Obamas watch their show -- though, apparently, Barack is not among the viewers.

Khloe, meanwhile, might have a bone to pick with the president: She has said that Obama told her it was a "great show" when they met last year.

And the Kardashian clan might have a bone to pick with Leno. When Obama asked the late-night host whether he should start watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Leno didn't give a very convincing answer. "It's a wonderful show," Leno replied laughing.

So, yeah, it doesn't seem like Obama is going to be catching up with the Kardashians any time soon.
