    Can’t wait! Delighted WDYTYA will be returning on July 23! It confirms my belief that we are all truly connected!

    Yes! I am glad I found out about the move…their loss is TLCs gain! Too bad the stations are losing quality programs!

    I loved watching this series and was stunned when it was canceled by NBC so I am thrilled that TLC has taken it over.
    Every family has a story to tell and these televised stories, although they make it look far easier than it really is, show us that the truth is often very exciting and often mysterious.

    I love this show and have missed it this season. I can’t imagine why NBC dropped it, but now I’m looking forward to picking up the new season with TLC. I’ve told all my friends.

    Love this show! Searched the web to see when season 4 would be starting up. So glad TLC picked up! Keep up the good work!

    I miss this show. I find it incredibly interesting and it inspires me to investigate my own family history. I will definitely watch every episode !

    I love this show, and with all the recent cancelations on network tv, I will have so much more time to explore channels like TLC once more. Seriously like 85% of my viewing time on tv has been opened up, and I watch A LOT of tv.

  8. Why Watch says

    Why should I care about famous celebrities and their lineage. It would be more interesting if this was done for your average person and for them to find out something about their family they had not known.
    TLC used to have good shows, now they aren’t worth watching anymore.

    LOVED THIS SERIES. Looked forward to it weekly and was very disappointed when it was cancelled. Thank goodness someone out there cares about what we want to watch.
