Chris Jericho, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'It's a pretty big deal to be a celebrity contestant on 'Dancing With the Stars.' It is, after all, the No. 2 show on television. But it's Chris Jericho's connections to the No. 1 show on television that is getting him the most attention, according to his appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Both 'American Idol' and 'DWTS' tape in the same studio, so Jericho has had opportunities to meet some of the contestants. He and James Durbin have become friends, and he even helped Pia Toscano make a possible love connection.

In relaying the story, he broke into an amazing Pia impression, too. "Oh, I really like Mark Ballas and he's so pretty," Jericho said she told him, and so he simply facilitated the exchanging of phone numbers.

"I'm getting more coverage from like TMZ and all the tabloid shows [than] from anything I've done on 'Dancing With the Stars' because I passed a couple of phone numbers over," he said.
