President Obama's last interview as president will be with the same program that aired his first upon taking office: "60 Minutes." 

The CBS interview — hosted by Steve Kroft — has already been taped and will air on Sunday at 7 p.m.

According to the network, Kroft spoke with Obama at the White House about his two-term legacy, President-elect Trump, passing ObamaCare in 2009, Democratic losses in the 2010 midterm elections, the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011 and the Syrian civil war.

The hourlong special will directly compete with the Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys NFL divisional playoff game on Fox. 

The game will likely run through most of the CBS Obama special and is expected to easily be the most watched NFL game thus far this season, with an expected audience of 50 million.
