In preliminary results for last Friday, “Who Do You Think You Are?” won the 8-9 p.m. ET hour in adults 18-49, marking the first time any regular competitor in this slot has beaten an original episode of CBS’s “Ghost Whisperer” in 18-49 rating since November 17, 2006. “Who Do You Think You Are?” has improved the time period by 23 percent in adult 18-49 rating versus NBC’s average for the traditional 2008-09 season in “live plus same day” results.
You can watch “Who Do You Think You Are?” episodes on NBC.com.
I don’t know about you but this news made my day. I love this show and can not wait to see who else is on. I actually DVR each episode and watch them several times. My husband who is not that into genealogy is also now watching with me every Friday night.
This is one of the best weekly shows that I have seen in some time. It is always amazing to see just what unexpected things are uncovered. I love the look on peoples faces when they first find new information on their family. The knowledge that you are a bit more or different than you thaught you were is always shocking.
For those of you that like a little challenge, how about making your own video for your family? I am hoping to do this for my family sometime this year. At a family reunion or big birthday, how fun would it be to share what you have found. Or if you are not into the video idea, a scrapbook would be alot of fun also. Documents, pictures, slipits of information. These would get everyone talking for sure.
If you have ideas to share please let me know. I am always looking for something new to try.
