It's no secret that "Scandal" is one of the most addicting shows on TV, so we're not exactly surprised that First Lady Michelle Obama has fallen under Olivia Pope's spell.

On a long flight to Hawaii over the holidays, Obama said she fell in love with the ABC drama.

"I watched all the seasons; I caught up on 'Scandal.' I had never watched it," she told Ryan Seacrest on Thursday (Jan. 30). "I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun."

Michelle isn't the only Obama who has developed a binge watching habit. In December, Barack told the New York Times that he likes to kick back and relax with shows like "House of Cards," "Homeland," "Breaking Bad" and "Game of Thrones."

It's always good to know that the Obamas are keeping up with their pop culture, right?
