Who Do You Think You Are? Lionel Richie Ratings

Ratings for Who Do You Think You Are?

The overnight ratings for Season 2 Episode 5 of Who Do You Think You Are? with Lionel Richie are up over Zap2It – TV by the Numbers, MediaWeek and The Futon Critic:

NBC’s already renewed Who Do You Think You Are? finished second in the 8 p.m. hour, with 6.13 million viewers and a 1.2/ 4 among adults 18-49. (Media Week)

I expected an episode of WDYTA focusing on African-American family history to be higher in the ratings but the NAACP Image Awards broadcast on Fox may have taken some viewers away who would have tuned in to see Lionel Richie.  Stay tuned.

  1. I’m irritated that they didn’t go further. I know they only have an hour, but Lionel Ritchie is just as related to Dr. Brown as anyone else in the Brown family tree.

    Isn’t it of interest that he descends from Sir Anthony Brown? I wonder if they even told him. Not many people can say their ancestor was in the employ of Henry VIII. “Sir Anthony Brown, Master of Horse to Henry VIII”

  2. I am not so much concerned with ratings… the show in & of itself has caused such a widespread interest in genealogy… kind makes me feel not so lonely & old anymore 🙂

    However, I am really disappointed in the episode with Lionel Richie. I was so looking forward to this one episode out of the list, but all they did was basically a repeat of Vanessa Williams story… I know that NOT ALL African American history is the same… but with Lionel Richie, they basically told the world it was 🙁

    And Lionel was so compassionate & he had a true interest & they lamed it up 🙁
