PBS’ Finding Your Roots Returns October 3

Reminder: the new season of PBS’ hit show, Finding Your Roots, hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., premieres on Tuesday, October 3 at 8/7c.

As in past years, the new season will include well known comedians, journalists, and A-list celebrities as guests on each episode. The guests in the first episode of the season include Larry David and Bernie Sanders. These two guests are linked by one hilarious impersonation. The show will trace their roots from 1940s Brooklyn back to Jewish communities in Europe.

What a charming promo! Professor Gates is a class act, all the way.

I have said it before and I say it again — too bad that celebrities have their genealogy traced when they could well afford to have it done by professional genealogists. People, like many of us, of only modest means and many on a fixed income can hardly afford such an extensive search and would welcome an opportunity that these well-to-do celebrities will enjoy.
