Who Do You Think You Are? (http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/) show link

I've seen previews for the show - which is amazing since my hubby doesn't like commercials & fast forwards through everything.. lol what I did not catch was when it started; or what night/time it was on.

I don't know how I caught last nights episode as it's not a channel we usually watch, especially not on a Friday night at 8 (EST) - Ghost Whisperer fan.. decided to watch it, and record GW to watch at 9.

Last night was Emmitt Smith link (http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/bios/emmittS.shtml) - you can watch the full episode; you can alo see the branch of his family tree that he followed.

He chose to follow his fathers side - focusing on his paternal grandmother. I don't know how they decide which branch to follow; but it was pretty interesting.

At one point his DNA was taken, to where they could pin point where his ancestors came from in Africa.

Anyone else going to watch this?
The whole time I wondered what I could learn from the show to help in Ben's search.

Thanks Carol, I just added EST to where I mentioned it was on at 8pm.

I'll have a look at the drawing because I'm clueless..

I was getting ready to watch Sarah Jessica Parker online when our power went out. Just came back on.
