Chrissy Metz Credits Herself for Naming 'This Is Us'

Chrissy Metz sits down for an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday (September 20) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress told the host how she believes she helped come up with the title for her hit series This Is Us.

“I’d like to say yes. So Dan Fogelman, our incredible creator, said, ‘Guys. If you guys can come up with a name, I’ll give you an iPad.’ I was like, ‘An iPad? I want points on the backend.’ I can buy an iPad, Dan Fogelman,” she said.

“We all accumulated our lists. I sent it over. The one that I chose was, This Is Me & You. I’m just saying, I think I named our show. I’m pretty sure. I’m pretty sure he was inspired!” she added.
