5294Cancellation of Who Do You Think You Are? by CBC
- Apr 8, 2008
I received this message on another genealogy list and thought AFHS members might be interested. I do not know who the original author was or the date of the original message.
I have just learned the sad news that CBC has decided not to renew the
genealogy series "Who Do You Think You Are?" for a second season. This is
really disappointing for those of us who worked on the show. We all enjoyed
the experience and were proud of what we accomplished. The ratings for the
show were very good, but the CBC has decided that it doesn't have "room" in
its schedule for the show.
If you enjoyed the program and would like to see it continue, why not
contact the folks at CBC and let them know how you feel? If enough people
express their disappointment, perhaps they will change their minds.
Here are a few people at CBC you can contact:

Also, if CBC won't pick it up, perhaps CTV would! Send a note to them at
In the meantime, reruns of season one will be running on CBC Newsworld on
Sundays at 1:30 and 4:30 (starting yesterday). Tune in and show CBC that you
really do care!
