It’s my turn to take over the TV at our house this Wednesday at 9 p.m. (Eastern), when the new season of the US series “Who Do You Think You Are?” (WDYTYA?) premieres on TLC.
The first episode features the family tree of actor Cynthia Nixon, known for her role as Miranda in “Sex and the City.” I never got into “Sex and the City,” but you can bet I’ll tune in to “WDYTYA?” for the genealogy.
Watch a trailer for the episode below. In it, Nixon views court records and visits a prison where it sounds like one of her female ancestors was incarcerated.
Other celebrities featured this season include Valerie Bertinelli, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lauren Graham, Kelsey Grammer, and sisters Rachel and Kayleen McAdams. We’ll also see some older episodes, from the show’s run on NBC.
Ancestry.com sponsors the show (which you’ll likely gather from its prominent positioning in each episode).
If you can’t watch on Wednesday or you don’t have cable, most episodes are posted to the “Who Do You Think You Are?” website after airing. Anybody know if they’ll be on Hulu? I searched, but found only clips, not full episodes, from last year.
We’ll post a recap here on the Genealogy Insider blog, too.
