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.

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

I loved this show. I looked forward to watching it. My Dad knew very little about his parents because they both past when he was young. I so wish I had more info and were I could go to look for more. Ancestry.com didn't have much info.

I was looking forward for it to come back on this year. As for me, I don't know anything about my mom (66) or my father (86) side of the family. That was something (for some reason) they never seemed to talked about. I only have a marriage license on my dad side that dates back to Aug. 1926 that I found last year. He doesn't remember any of the names on it. The show would have given me good information on where to start. Hopefully it will come on in the near future. IT WAS A GREAT SHOW!!!!!

I was so looking forward to Who Do You Think You Are coming back on. Last March, after a very interesting episode, I decided to research my family tree. I spent six weeks on my father's side and was able to go back 12 generations! I found out that I'm a distant cousin to two of our First Ladies! I wouldn't have found that out without this show. So, thank you, NBC, for introducing us to genealogy. Now, please bring back our favorite show. There's so much more to learn!

I loved the show and wish that NBC would reconsider and bring it back to primetime. It was my favorite, as each broadcast brought the unexpected and was a lesson in how important family history can be.

Cancellation of this show is another example of how NBC has it's head so up its behind it isn't funny. They continue to trail in the ratings race and they can't figure out why. The few decent shows they get (like this one) they cancel? Idiots.
