Critic Reviews

    Not only are the stories engrossing in and of themselves, but they seem certain to spark interest in genealogy among viewers.
  2. 75
    It's a well-done project, but I do have some minor complaints.

    None of these results will rock a viewer's world, but it's unexpectedly satisfying to see stars in a reality project that's more relatable than ballroom dancing or a temporary work detail for Donald Trump.
  4. Besides, whatever its antecedents, NBC's Who Do You Think You Are? turns out to be pretty good TV. Even if it's maybe a bit slicker than it needs to be.
  5. As fans of "Survivor" and "The Amazing Race" know, there are reality shows, and there are reality shows. Who Do You Think You Are? may not be up to those standards, but although it shares none of the game-show attributes of its new NBC cohorts, it's the clear winner.
