I Get That A Lot 8 p.m., Channel 4

Do you ever see someone and think, “wow, that person looks just like (insert famous name here)? That is the entire premise of this occasional series, which finds famous folks posing as retail and food service workers and denying who they are as they wait on suspicious celeb-spotters. Tonight’s edition includes a funny exchange with talk host Jerry Springer (pictured) who is told by a woman that he’s a “clone’’ for Michael Douglas. When he tells her he is often mistaken for Jerry Springer she responds “he’s creepy’’ and Springer agrees, adding for good measure “he’s ruining the culture.’’ Others trying to pull the wool include “NCIS’’ lab rat Pauley Perrette and former “Tool Time’’ girl Pamela Anderson.
