I GET THAT A LOT, featuring popular stars pulling pranks on everyday people, returns with a new one-hour special, to be broadcast Wednesday, May 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
I GET THAT A LOT features celebrities tricking everyday citizens in a case of supposed “mistaken identity.” Working ordinary jobs, these celebrities confuse customers who can’t decide if it’s the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike. As these celebrity jesters continue to deny their true identities, various reactions from their customers solicit exasperated and hilarious responses.
Celebrity participants include Wayne Brady (“Let’s Make a Deal”) working behind the front desk at a nice hotel, style icon Tim Gunn behind the counter at a fast food joint, The Jonas Brothers’ Nick Jonas working at a girls’ clothing shop, country superstar Wynonna Judd selling tires, Jay Mohr (“Gary Unmarried”) as a coffee house barista and television host and lifestyle expert Martha Stewart (“The Martha Stewart Show”) as a craft store employee.
