All geneabloggers were delighted when the US version of Who Do You Think You Are? was announced by NBC with a purported premiere date in April.
Unfortunately, the show's premiere has been delayed. On February 12, Tracing the Tribe posted the following: WDYTYA: Delay until summer .
Previously published posts concerning the show were the following:
January 29, 2009 - WDYTYA: Impact on genealogy, American-style?
January 22, 2009 - Lisa Kudrow: A friend in the family
April 05, 2008 - Los Angeles: Who do you think you are? - April 13
March 13, 2008 - Coming to America: NBC to produce gen show
November 24, 2006 - Is genealogy coming to prime time TV?
Unfortunately, a number of bloggers and posters to other lists have seen the page at NBC news and taken it as a "new" press release (it has no date and is the original piece posted months and months ago), believing that the premiere date shown on that page was accurate. It is not.
The show has been delayed and will NOT premiere on April 20. A new date has not yet been set, but rumors point to a summer date.
As soon as a firm date has been set, count on Tracing the Tribe to announce it.
