Posted: May 24, 2012 8:01 AM

First Lady Michelle Obama, who is the most televised first lady in U.S. history, is about to get even more air time with appearances on a host of TV shows to promote her new book.

First lady Michelle Obama will launch her latest media blitz next week with a string of TV appearances to promote her book on gardens.

Obama is set to appear Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "The View," and Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the White House said Wednesday. She'll also tape an interview for "LIVE! with Kelly" while in New York next Wednesday and an appearance on the "Rachael Ray Show" is set to air next Thursday.

Promoting a new book, campaigning for Barack, same thing right? The proceeds from the book will be donated to the National Parks Foundation.
