Lisa Kudrow appeared on “Today” this morning to talk about “Who Do You Think You Are?” which premieres (in case you hadn’t heard) this Friday on NBC at 8 pm (7pm central).
She describes the episode about her own roots (airing March 19) as “relentless” because it deals with the Holocaust—but if you hang in there, she adds, there’s a “happy surprise” at the end. Kudrow also calls Emmitt Smith, whose episode airs March 12, a “great teacher.” Here’s the “Today” video:
Looks like the Today anchors, who’ve explored their own ancestries for television, plan to tune in.
