Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot' (VIDEO)

Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot''I Get That a Lot' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) is a reality show where celebrities take regular, working-class jobs. Eventually, the stars are recognized, but then they deny being who they really are. For example, Martha Stewart will refuse to admit to being Martha Stewart, even when she is told that she looks just like her. The inevitable response from the stars on the show is -- you guessed it -- "I get that a lot."

On the most recent episode, one of the stars gets into trouble while meeting someone who isn't actually a fan of his. The bad thing happens to Nick Jonas -- who gets exposed as looking just like Nick Jonas while working undercover in a clothing store.

Unfortunately, the woman who sees him isn't that positive about the whole Jonas Brothers experience. "They're terrible," she says to Nick. "Musically, they're awful." Nick handles the whole thing pretty well, all things considered.

So will CBS 'Get That a Lot' more now?

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 2nd 2009 5:10PM
Jeff Probst in Last night's April Fool's special I Get That a Lot on CBS picked up quite a few viewers; early estimates give it 10.3 million. It's a far cry from Idol's 23.7 million, but in today's television landscape, 10 million viewers isn't anything to sneer at. Which means that there are suits at CBS looking at the program and thinking what more they can do with it. Annual specials? Nah, gotta keep it in people's minds. Quarterly? Periodic limited runs? A summer series maybe?

Never mind that the premise may not even work again. The Swan and Joe Millionaire were huge hits for Fox in their first cycles, but ratings plummeted later. Curiosity brings in viewers to start things off, but the luster tends to wear off quickly. But then again, people do love their celebrities, we love to watch them bloop and apparently dance. So why not watch them pretending to be regular schlubs. If it becomes too regular, more people on the street will be at least tangentially aware of the show and thus be less likely to fall for the ruse.
