Ex-Cowboy football great Emmitt Smith will help try save NBC from its Tonight Show/Jay Leno debacle as he makes an appearance on a new network show.
The former running back will appear on a new alternative series “Who Do You Think You Are?” premiering Friday, March 5 at 7 p.m. Central. The show is part of a new revamped schedule after Jay Leno's weekday 10 p.m. show was canceled, with Leno retaking the "Tonight Show" slot from Conan O'Brien.
According to an NBC press release, “Who Do You Think You Are?” gives viewers an up-close and personal look inside the family history of celebrities.
