Hooray! WDYTYA-USA renewed!

An NBC press release dated April 5 indicated that the American version of "Who Do You Think You Are?" (and two other shows) has been renewed for the 2010-11 season.

Read the complete press release here, but the relevant parts are below:
"Who Do You Think You Are?" from executive producer Lisa Kudrow is averaging a 1.6 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers overall in "most current" results for its season thus far. In preliminary results for last Friday, "Who Do You Think You Are?" won the 8-9 p.m. ET hour in adults 18-49, marking the first time any regular competitor in this slot has beaten an original episode of CBS's "Ghost Whisperer" in 18-49 rating since November 17, 2006. "Who Do You Think You Are?" has improved the time period by 23 percent in adult 18-49 rating versus NBC's average for the traditional 2008-09 season in "live plus same day" results.

Thomas MacEntee over at Geneabloggers.com presents each week's stats for the show.

Genealogists aren't surprised by the ratings - we knew it would be a hit - and we are all hoping that the show will "bounce" interest in our passion and sometimes-compulsive interest.

Wonder who the celebs will be next season?

Now, if those of us based elsewhere on the globe could see the episodes, life would be even better!
