Rumors Fly: Kelly Clarkson Filming "Who Do You Think You Are?" for TLC
Posted by Diane

Genealogy blogger Dick Eastman spotted an online report that the cable network TLC (The Learning Channel) will pick up the US series "Who Do You Think You Are?," which NBC cancelled after last season.

According to the report on the Taste of Country website, NashvilleGab.com announced that singer and "American Idol" Season 1 champ Kelly Clarkson is filming an episode of the genealogy series.

NashvilleGab.com referenced mjsbigblog (taglined "American Idol—I love This Cheesy Show), which in turn cited a tweet from a man who met Clarkson in Andersonville, Ga., as well as a brief report from that town's paper.

I hope these folks are right! Rumors of TLC's interest in the series circulated last year, and I think it's a great way for the channel to redeem itself after "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

I have to admit...I'm not thrilled that TLC picked this up. The home that shows off Hoarders, parades Honey BooBoo, and who knows what they were thinking with Gypsy Weddings, Gypsy Sisters...this is where we have to go for WDYTYA? Really...disappointed is more what I'm feeling.

Hi, Candy, that's an interesting point. I hadn't looked at it that way--I'm just glad someone picked up the show. We DVR a lot and will fast-forward through commercials, so I can miss those shows/promos. I do like TLC's "What Not to Wear" and I have a strange fascination with "Hoarders" (I studied psychology), but I definitely agree the channel could do without some of the shows.

I attended a webinar on Wednesday by Megan Smolenyak and she said it was in the works and mentioned the first two people who were going to be filmed. Wish I could remember who the other one is.

Very exciting news! I'd rather have WDYTYA? on TLC than not have it at all. Now if only BBC America or PBS would pick up the original BBC series which I've seen a few episodes of and is much better (read: much less cheesy) than its American counterpart. ;)
