2012 WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER
April 28, 2012  | By David Bianculli

C-SPAN, 9:40 p.m. ET

 

The host of this year’s event, at which President Barack Obama and the First Lady will be guests of honor, is Jimmy Kimmel. Expect a sharp show, and some sharp jokes: Every year, when hosting ABC’s upfronts for advertisers, Kimmel is funnier, more pointed and more memorable than most new TV shows presented at the event. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with the red carpet arrivals, and is followed by during-dinner interviews and other features that pass the time until the President takes the podium to serve as Kimmel’s warm-up act. And remember – last year, while Obama was killing them at this event, his elite military team was in the act of killing, too. As in, Osama bin Laden.
