Rachel Maddow On 'Ellen': MSNBC Host Talks Gangnam Style, 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show on Wednesday to chat politics and more.

DeGeneres asked the MSNBC host if she ever turns off politics to unwind. Maddow, whose show tapes live weeknights from 9-10 p.m., said that sometimes she comes home and turns on "Jersey Shore."

"I have to say this season is a little disappointing," Maddow lamented. "I mean, if you like 'Jersey Shore,' you're not there to see The Situation get his life together with a sober coach."

She added, "You're not there for models of personal responsibility...I'm not there to see improvement."

DeGeneres then asked Maddow for her reactions to various pop-culture crazes, including Gangnam style.

"Do you know the dance?" DeGeneres asked.

Oh yes she does. Maddow proceeded to bust out her best Gangnam style dance while seated in the chair.
