Can you believe it? With the broadcast last Sunday night, we’re almost halfway through the 2015 season of “Who Do You Think You Are.” To date, the celebrity-based genealogy reality show has featured the following guests: On Mar 8 Julie Chen, on location in Los Angeles, California; Singapore; Penglai, Shandong, China; on Mar 15 Josh Groban, in Los Angeles, California; Stuttgart, Germany; and on Mar 22 Angie Harmon, in Charlotte, North Carolina; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Valley Forge, Pennsylvania; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Harrodsburg, Kentucky.
While I like Julie Chen as a television personality, I think it was curious that the series started with her segment, with its focus on Chinese genealogy. I would have expected somebody like Angie Harmon, with her more American-based family history to lead off the series.
The upcoming episodes will feature Sean Hayes on Mar 29, Tony Goldwyn on Apr 5, America Ferrera on Apr 12, Bill Paxton on 7 Apr 19, and Melissa Etheridge on Apr 26. Locations to be visited with these episodes have not been announced. The broadcast time on TLC is 10 pm Eastern Daylight Time, 9 pm Central.
