It's not exactly the same as being invited to make a guest appearance, but it's fun enough to mention.
Tonight when comedian Jimmy Fallon takes to the couch on Watch What Happens Live (11 p.m., Bravo) in support of his new show, Guys with Kids, you'll hear him answer an audience question from Collingswood Patch's TV blogger, Jonathan Elliott.
Elliott won a Facebook contest on the Bravo page of Watch What Happens Live Monday when producers selected his question from among those of several other entrants.
His prize? The right to call in on his lunch break Tuesday and wait on hold for 45 minutes for the chance to crack wise with host Andy Cohen and Fallon.
Elliott's question, which producers chose from a sample of four that he offered, was to ask Fallon, an impressionist, "Of all your impressions, which one would be best at babysitting your kids?"
Without giving too much away, Elliott said Fallon jumped all over the chance to do a quick impersonation. In all, the ten seconds of fame was enough to give him a little jolt, but not enough to brag much about.
"I expect to be the coolest kid in the lunchroom Wednesday morning," Elliott laughed.
