The White House Correspondents Dinner (CNN, CSPAN, MSNBC) - This broadcast is always good for a few laughs. It’s headlined this year by Joel McHale, star of NBC’s “Community” but also the sarcastic host of “The Soup,” the weekly show on the E! network that makes fun of clips from reality shows, talk shows and other pop culture miscellanea. But it’s very often the case that President Barack Obama’s speech is funnier than that of the invited comedian. It airs from 6-11 p.m. on CSPAN, 8-11 p.m. on CNN and 9-11 p.m. on MSNBC.
