Mitt Romney Is A Fan Of Snooki And 'Modern Family,' But Doesn't Keep Up With The Kardashians (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Mitt and Ann Romney's interview on "Live with Kelly & Michael" finally aired Tuesday, and much of the conversation was was focused on the couple's TV tastes.

The Republican candidate joined his wife in declaring that "Modern Family" is his favorite TV show, despite the firestorm of controversy Mrs. Romney's statement caused weeks earlier. After initially hearing that she was a fan of the show, "Modern Family" co-creator Steve Levitan took to Twitter to offer her a role as the officiant of Cam and Mitch's wedding ... when gay marriage is legalized.

The couple also revealed that they are not regular viewers of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." "Who can keep up with the Kardashians?" Ann asked. "I'm afraid not," Mitt said.

Romney did heap praise on MTV reality star Snooki, but his comments seemed to indicate he had no idea that she had been pregnant and just given birth to her newborn son Lorenzo. "I'm kind of a Snooki fan. I mean, look how tiny she's gotten, she's lost weight and she's energetic, just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun."
