First Lady Michelle Obama to re-visit ‘The Colbert Report’

First Lady Michelle Obama continues her march through the TV landscape Wednesday when she makes a return visit to Comedy Central’s ‘The Colbert Report” Wednesday.

This, on the heels of her appearance Saturday at Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards, and her two-episode story arc on NBC’s fat farm competion series “The Biggest Loser.”

It will be her first appearance on the faux news show since entering the White House; she’ll mark the one-year anniversary of her Joining Forces initiative to support veterans and military families.

The First Lady debuted on “The Colbert Report” on April 15, 2008, which was also her late-night debut.

“We are honored that the First Lady is joining us and I trust that the feeling is mutual,” show star Stephen Colbert said in Wednesday’s announcement.

Just last Saturday, Michelle Obama was a headliner at Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards, to present something called The Big Help Award to Taylor Swift, in recognition of her work with U.S. tornado and flood survivors. That was the second time Obama appeared on Nickelodeon this year — the First Lady also stopped by “iCarly” to play herself earlier in the year.

Both Nickelodeon and Comedy Central are owned by Viacom.

She also committed to a two-episode guest gig on NBC’s ratings lean weight-loss competition series, “The Biggest Loser.” NBC is owned by Comcast.
