Barack Obama


The U.S. President will sit down with Steve Kroft for the first interview he is conducting since the killing of the terrorist leader.

"60 Minutes" scores the first interview with Barack Obama since he announced the death of terrorist Osama bin Laden. The U.S. President has agreed to sit down with the CBS show's correspondent Steve Kroft for a chat to be conducted at the White House on Wednesday, May 4. The interview will be broadcast on "60 Minutes" on Sunday, May 8 at 7 P.M. ET/PT.

In the meantime, it has been reported that Obama drew 56 million American viewers when he announced the killing of Osama on Sunday, May 1. According to Nielsen, the nine-minute speech which was aired from 11:35 to 11:44 P.M. EDT on 9 networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News, had a combined household rating of 33.9.

The announcement interrupted the primetime and caused delay on the airing of "The Celebrity Apprentice" on the West Coast.

President Obama and first lady Michelle recently appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on Monday, May 2. The show, however, had been taped about a week before.
