Noah Ritter – the five-year-old known as the 'Apparently' kid after he charmed viewers with his oh-so-serious TV interview – had America smiling again when he appeared on a daytime chat show.
The boy, from Pottstown, Pennsylvania, became an instant star with his live TV interview last Friday on the opening day of the Wayne County Fair because of his fondness for the word 'apparently'.
A video of his interview has attracted more than 3 million views – and led to TV stations clamouring to hear more from the earnest chap.
He was asked by presenter Michael Strahan how it felt to be on TV, to which Noah responded: "It's great, it's so great because I really never had any people like me. Fans... are you kidding me?"
He then talked about American football before moving on to dinosaurs, saying: "I brainwashed myself to like dinosaurs," causing the TV crew to erupt into laughter.
The host asked Noah what he wants to be when he grows up, to which he replied: "I'm going to be a paleontologist. He studies lots and lots of different types of dinosaurs."
Noah also told viewers about his love of swimming and when Strahan asked if he could beat him, he quickly answered: "Yes. I'm a very good swimmer. I've even won long races."
In another TV appearance, Noah told Today that he was thinking of retiring the word 'apparently', for a few simple reasons.
He said: "I don't know how to spell 'apparently'. I don't know what it means, but I use it in, 'Wow, this is apparently annoying'."
However, he's enjoying his new-found stardom, describing fame as 'a thousand drops of heaven'.
Viewers were first introduced to Noah last week when he was stopped at the country fair in Honesdale by a WNEP TV crew.
Reporter Sofia Ojeda stopped Noah to ask him if he enjoyed the rides and was probably expecting a shy nod and a hesitant couple of words. What she got was extremely serious Noah.
Staring straight into the camera, Noah warned viewers not to expect slick perfection in his broadcasting, saying: "I've never been on live television before. I don't watch the news, because I'm a kid.
"And Grandpa just gives me the remote after we watch the Powerball [lottery]."
When asked about the ride he had just been on, he even remembered that when you're covering the news, it's best to cover your back with a few 'allegedlys'.
He said: "Well, it was great, because apparently it was spinning around and apparently every time you get dizzy."
