If you missed an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? on NBC, don't forget that you can also watch it online on NBC's web site. The programs do not become available on the web site until a few hours after they have been broadcast on television. The episodes will be available online for about six months or so, but not forever.
The online versions can be watched at any time you wish, not at a set time determined by the network. Even better, many of the commercials have been deleted, although not all.
I do believe the programs are restricted to U.S. viewers for licensing reasons. When you connect to the NBC web site and attempt to view a video, the web server's software checks to see if you connected from a U.S. I.P. address. If not, you will be denied access to the videos. Would-be viewers outside the U.S. are out of luck unless they have VPN (virtual private network) software that connects to a gateway in the U.S.
