After a pair of fairly successful series launches this week (and, in the case of “The Tonight Show,” a re-launch), NBC’s midseason efforts had a mixed outcome on Friday night with the debut of “Who Do You Think You Are?”
This new reality show (6.9 million viewers, 1.6 preliminary adults 18-49) shows celebrities their ancestral past, with last night’s debut featuring Sarah Jessica Parker learning a relative was accused of witchcraft. A 1.6 demo rating is not a number any network covets for a series premiere, but given the ever-lowering bar for success on Friday nights, “Who Do You Think” was only a tenth of a point behind time-period winner “The Ghost Whisperer” (7.4 million, 1.7).
“Who do you think you are” é produzido pela atriz Lisa Kudrow (Is or Isn’t Entertainment Company). Baseado em uma série da BBC, o programa em formato de documentário mostra os ancestrais de uma pessoa famosa a cada episódio. Assista ao preview aqui.
