Who Do You Think You Are? -News Flash - Episode Schedule and Oprah!

The excitement is building with only two days left until the premier of Who Do You Think You Are? The genealogy industry is hoping for a big impact. The UK show has resulted in more than 5 million viewers during the last season. Nearly 12,000 attended the live conference in February of 2009. Of those, 84 percent say they started researching since 2004. Whether the U.S. version will have the same impact has yet to be seen, but I do believe the time is right. The show will be featured on Oprah, that certainly couldn't hurt. Check out the schedule below of upcoming episodes.
