Review | Who Do You Think You Are?
AIR DATE FRIDAY 3/5
Produced by Lisa Kudrow, this genealogy quest finds celebs trekking the globe to unearth their ancestral roots. Subject No. 1: a game and gushy Sarah Jessica Parker, who's amazed to learn that her long-removed granny was involved in the Salem witch trials. While viewers may not think all the revelations are as mouth-dropping as that tidbit, posh production values and a pulsing pace help make each star's family history an effective and crackling mystery. (NBC, 8 P.M.)
