Season 2 of the US version of the universally popular program ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ debuted on Friday, 4th February 2011.  And what a start to the season it was, with over 8 million viewers in the United States tuning in to watch Vanessa William discover her past, setting a record high for the show, and beaten only by the ‘The Defenders’ in that timeslot.

Last year NBC did put the episodes of Season 1 Who Do You Think You Are? online for a while so people could watch them, however, this was only available to viewers in the US. So I am pleased to see that the Season 2 ones can be watched globally, and I have already watched the first episode.

If you wish to watch the US Who Do You Think our Are? (US) episodes  prior to them being available on DVD or on regular TV (whenever that may be), you can tune in to them here. Episode 1 featuring Vanessa Williams episode is available to watch online until 18 September 2011.

The other celebrities to appear in Season 2 are:  Steve Buscemi, Kim Cattrall, Ashley Judd, Tim McGraw, Rosie O’Donnell, Lionel Richie and Lisa Kudrow.

In Australia, Season 1 began airing on the Channel 9 on April 28, 2010. Season 2 and reruns of Season 1 will now air on it’s sister channel, GEM.
