“Who Do You Think You Are?” New Episode Showcasing Rachel And Kayleen McAdams Airs Tonight On TLC At 8 PM Central Time; “Encore” Episodes Of Originally Aired Episodes Will Also Appear On TLC

Hi Everyone!

The Learning ChannelI wanted to remind you that the 3rd “new” episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” for this year’s series airs tonight on TLC at 8 PM Central time.

Rachel McAdams and her sister Kayleen are featured on this episode.

Try to watch the original airing on TLC tonight if possible.

TLC kindly provided me with a link to get you to the preview of tonight’s episode.

Here is a link to the preview of this episode that you can find at TLC:

Preview of August 6, 2014 Rachel and Kayleen McAdams Episode on “Who Do You Think You Are?”

TLC also provided me with some other descriptive information about this episode as well as indicating that TLC now has the ability to also air episodes of the series that were formerly on NBC.  So it appears viewers on TLC will now see the current “new” episodes as well as be able to see many of the “encore” episodes when they are scheduled for viewing on TLC.

Based on the text from TLC, you can view an  “encore” episode of the series at 9 PM Central time tonight.  The “new” episode precedes the “encore” episode tonight.

So you can actually make a night of “Who Do You Think You Are? tonight.   You can watch the episode featuring Cynthia Nixon that kicked off the new season on TLC at 7 PM Central time (I discovered this by looking at the Schedule of Programs for tonight at TLC).  Then watch the brand new episode at 8 PM Central time tonight.   Then cap off your evening viewing with an “encore” episode featuring Gwyneth Paltrow at 9 PM Central time.  A “mini-marathon” it is!!

Here is the text shown in Italics from TLC (I did change the reference to the airing of this episode from “tomorrow” to “tonight” since the information was sent yesterday.)


TLC’s Emmy-nominated series continues, and this week actress Rachel McAdams and her sister Kayleen dig into their family roots  tonight, August 6 at 9/8c. In their episode, Rachel and Kayleen discover an English ancestor surrounded by a privileged world, but forced to separate from those he loved. They connect with relatives uprooted by war, and uncover the harrowing circumstances behind their Canadian roots.

 In addition to this season’s new premieres, TLC has also acquired episodes from previous seasons of the series, marking their first debut on cable. Following Rachel and Kayleen McAdams’ episode, an encore of Gwyneth Paltrow’s episode airs at 10/9c. 

 Next week’s episode airing August 13 will feature Valerie Bertinelli, with Kelsey Grammer the following week on August 20. Future encores include Brooke Shields on 8/13, Vanessa Williams on 8/20, Rita Wilson on 8/27, and Reba McEntire and Tim McGraw on 9/3. 


Get yourself in the rhythm of the day and the time the show airs for both “new” episodes as well as the “encore” episodes both from this season as well as the encore episodes from the original airings on NBC.  View the new episode when it is happening so you can start gathering the tips you view and put them into practice the very next day on your own research.

Thanks to TLC for providing me with the information and the link above.

Enjoy this new episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” tonight at 8 PM Central time featuring Rachel and Kayleen McAdams!
