“We are honored to host President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on The View,” said Walters. “Although each of them has appeared several times on the program, this first joint appearance marks a significant milestone."

President Obama first visited The View in July 2010, marking the show's most-watched broadcast with nearly 6.6 million viewers, and was the first time a current U.S. president visited a daytime talker. Next week's appearance marks the president's fifth and Michelle Obama's fourth.

President Obama recently appeared on CBS' Late Show With David Letterman, driving ratings for the late-night talker to a two-year high.
