The family tree-tracing series will not return.


May 15, 2012

NBC has cancelled Who Do You Think You Are after three seasons. The genealogy documentary series, which premiered in March 2010, followed one celebrity in each episode as they traced back through their family tree to learn about their roots.

The show aired a total of 27 episodes and featured such stars such as Matthew Broderick, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Martin Sheen. The series finale is set to air this Friday, May 18, 2012.

This is so disappointing! I looked up the show to see when it was going to return and see that it's cancelled!!! This show was the best. Oh well, goodbye NBC, Who Do You Think You Are was the only show I watched on your channel. The one quality show you had and you cancel it.

What? Wasn't there enough blood and violence and persecution of Christians and Jews on the show, and oh yes, the hanging crotch wanna be gang bangers, not enough women sleeping with women, men sleeping with men and of course this program taught us something and didn't spend time on trying to change our way of thinking that socialism is the way to go transmisssion. SHAME ON NBC. YOU HAD A GREAT INFORMATIVE EDUCATIONAL SHOW AND i GUESS THAT WAS TOO BORING SO YOU WENT BACK TO BLOOD GORE GUNS DEATH.

NBC cancels a great show,,,,, Fans of WDYTYA,you can catch episodes of the UK and Austrailian shows online. These wereecen more interesting than the US show,

So sad to hear the show will not be back! I learned ALOT from the show. Just like others had said before me, NBC had a great program that even my children would watch. And before I knew it , my 12 yr old son was checking out "his" past. Hope someone else picks up the program!!

We loved this show! It was quality TV! Now that I think about it, this show belongs on OWN. Let's all write Oprah and request that she pick it up. Must we be subjected to all trash TV and leave quality shows such as this behind.

NBC is a bunch of idiots. They finally get a show that is interesting and has ties to history where the viewer can learn something and they cancel it. I am now 50 years old and this was the first show on NBC that I faithfully watched, probably since the 80's.

I can't believe they cancelled this great show. Always looked forward to seeing this. Had a lot of good history and pointers for amateur geneologist
