We know that President Barack Obama is a huge fan of Showtime's breakout hit "Homeland," but it looks like his 13-year-old daughter Malia is huge fan of NBC's "Parks and Recreation."

"Aziz Ansari... now this is big because Malia is a big 'Parks and Recreation' fan," the President said at a fundraiser Thursday night at ABC Kitchen in New York City. "So having Aziz here is like the only thing she thinks is worth me doing. I want to thank him for what he said earlier. I know he's backstage, but I just want to say that I have more Twitter followers than you, man."

Malia may be able to watch Ansari bring the funny on "Parks and Rec," but there is one show that the President makes sure his daughters stay away from -- "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

"Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an interview with iVillage.com last October. "But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in - what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."

The President is a fan of quality TV: His other TV favorites include HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and ABC sitcom "Modern Family." His favorite show of all-time is David Simon's critically-acclaimed drama "The Wire," which told the story of poverty and the drug trade in Baltimore.

Meanwhile, the First Lady recently appeared on a episode of "iCarly" to promote her message of support for the children of military families.
