President and Mrs. Obama sit down with Barbara Walters at the White House for their first joint interview since the President's re-election in November. In what has become an end-of-the-year tradition, Ms. Walters interviews the President first and then Mrs. Obama will join the conversation. Mrs. Obama, accompanied by the First Dog Bo, gives Ms. Walters a tour of the White House holiday decorations.

The interview with the President and First Lady will air on a special holiday edition of "NIGHTLINE" on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 26 (11:35 p.m.-12:00 a.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Excerpts from the interview will air on December 26 on "Good Morning America" (7:00-9:00 a.m. ET) "World News with Diane Sawyer" (6:30 p.m., ET),, ABC News Radio and ABC NewsOne.

The special was originally scheduled to air on "20/20," Friday, December 14, but was postponed due to the tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school. The interview took place on Tuesday, December 11.

This holiday special marks the fourth time the President and First Lady have sat for a joint interview with Walters. The first was November of 2008, immediately following the presidential election, the second was Thanksgiving 2010 and the third was December 2011.
