Who Do You Think You Are, Emmitt SmithEmmitt Smith got emotional while learning about his slave ancestors and their owners as he visited their graves on 'Who Do You Think You Are?' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC).

This show has flown under the radar, for the most part, but it's a really interesting look at the ancestry of various celebrities. With a Friday night time slot, hopefully it will get enough viewers to last a while. Are you watching?

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 9th 2010 7:13PM
Hall of Fame Football player Emmitt Smith -- who was born in Florida -- traveled to Alabama to research his ancestry. In Burnt Corn, where his great-great-grandmother was born, he meets up with his second cousin and his family. On 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (syndicated, weekdays), Smith teared up as he discussed his search and its results. "All the time, people want closure," he said. "And I feel that my folks didn't have closure. And when I found that information, I felt that they were crying out, 'we've got closure now.'"

Lisa Kudrow Answers the Question: Who Do You Think You Are?

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 4th 2010 2:03PM
Lisa Kudrow Who Do You Think You Are?You might say genealogical research runs in Lisa Kudrow's family. Long before the former 'Friends' star decided to bring the British TV show 'Who Do You Think You Are?' to American television, her father had already written a family tree that Kudrow says takes up roughly 46 pages.

Kudrow saw the long-running original show, which investigates the family history and genealogy of celebrities, when visiting Ireland, and decided to bring it to American audiences. The only question was, would she tell her own story on the show?

Our 'Dancing With the Stars' All-Stars Wish List

Mario Lopez'Dancing With the Stars' returns to ABC next spring for season 10 -- a nice round number, which gives the show the ideal opportunity to launch an all-star tournament of champions. If they decide to do so, here are the hip-shaking, samba-rolling celebrities we'd most like to see return to the ballroom.

Another football guy to Dance with the Stars

Sapp on RaidersHow would you like to watch this man do the mambo? Don't be stunned. It could happen.

Professional athletes have done well on Dancing with the Stars. Kristi Yamaguchi, ice skating star; Apolo Anton Ohno, Olympic speed skater; Helio Castroneves, race-car driver. It's also true that pro football players have done very well. Former Dallas Cowboy great Emmitt Smith won in 2006, and Miami Dolphins' Jason Taylor came in second this year.

Therefore, it's not surprising to hear that the producer of DWTS are courting another grid iron great, but this one? Warren Sapp, a recently retired defensive tackle, says that he's been invited to Dancing With the Stars and he's thinks he's going to do it.

Warren says he's been asked, but I'll believe this when it's announced by ABC. I'm not saying he's lying, I just think something may have been lost in the translation.

How I Met Your Mother: Monday Night Football

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 5th 2007 9:32PM
How I Met Your Mother(S02E14) Sometimes a show can't help but pull a plot from Sitcomville. That's what happens when you have to crank out 22 episodes per year (speaking of that... can you believe there are only eight episodes left? March and April are going to be pretty harsh). But it's what the show does with that standard-grade plot that shows the audience how strong the writing is overall. That's what we saw tonight with an episode that was likely designed to air right after last night's Super Bowl, before CBS got the bright idea to air Criminal Minds instead.

The mission: get to Monday evening without finding out anything about the Super Bowl. Pretty mundane, huh? Seen it all before, right? But it was all still pretty damn funny, wasn't it?

Dancing with the Stars: The Finale

by Brett Love, posted Nov 16th 2006 9:00AM
Emmitt Smith, Mario Lopez(S03E20) The grand finale of season three really boiled down to one question. With the judges taking themselves out of the equation, or being taken out of the equation by the producers (for the tinfoil hat crowd), would the viewers vote based on the dancing or popularity? Emmitt Smith put on quite a show over the course of this season. I think most people were surprised by just how well he performed. But as good as Emmitt was, Mario was consistently better.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 10

Emmitt Smith, Mario Lopez(S03E19) And it all comes down to this. If we flash back to the beginning of the season, I don't think anyone would really be surprised to see Mario in the finals. He and Karina came out of the gates as the favorite, and never let up. Emmitt on the other hand, I think that would have surprised a lot of people. Maybe it was because of Jerry Rice's performance, but I didn't give Emmitt near enough credit going into the competition. He's worked his way into the top two, and now has a legitimate chance at winning.

Emmitt Smith now favored to win DWTS

by Brett Love, posted Nov 11th 2006 4:05PM

Emmitt Smith & Cheryl BurkeIf you have been following Dancing with the Stars this season you probably know that Mario Lopez emerged as the favorite to win it all early on. He's lived up to that throughout the season, right up until now. As they get ready for the big, three dance, showdown this coming week the odds are changing. The online sportsbook at pinnaclesports.com has now made Emmitt Smith the favorite to win it all. That decision came after they received several $300 max limit bets on Emmitt. $300 bets on DWTS? The mind boggles.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 9 results

by Brett Love, posted Nov 9th 2006 8:35AM
Joey Lawerence and Edyta Silwinska(S03E18) And we're back to find out who is going to face off in the big three dance finale next week. It's been a crazy season for Dancing with the Stars. We had strange eliminations (Vivica), stranger non-eliminations (Jerry), and the two week adventure of Saragate. All things considered though, I think the voters picked a good final three. You could make a case for Willa to still be in the competition, but Emmitt, Joey, and Mario are all deserving.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 9

by Brett Love, posted Nov 8th 2006 10:27AM
Mario & Karina(S03E17) I got the feeling that some of the staff may have had vacation time to use up this week. They didn't even put in the effort to stretch the show. Instead we were given a clip show of past performances for the first half hour of the show. That was a little underhanded, but they did pick some of the really great performances to show. A couple of my favorites: Edyta and Kym dancing while Rod Stewart did "Hot Legs", Edyta, Karina, Maksim, and Tony with Lionel Richie performing, and the great SWOP demonstration.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 8 results

by Brett Love, posted Nov 2nd 2006 10:20AM
Joey & Edyta(S03E16) I'm amused by the hoops they have to jump through to stretch the results out to an hour. Seven minutes of rehashing last night to kick off the show. I realize that filling the 58 minutes of the hour that aren't the results is a chore each week. But aren't we pretty safe assuming that the vast majority of the people watching the results show also tuned in for the competition?

Monique and Louis were awarded the encore for their cha cha cha. Really, any of the couples could have been given the encore this week. They all danced very well. When they chose Monique and Louis I took that as confirmation that they were leaving and the producers wanted to give her the best possible send off.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 8

Carrie Anne Inaba(S03E15) Final Four! Not just final four, but Halloween final four. Fog machines, fake spiders, and bad acting from Samantha. I think you could make a case that maybe Willa Ford deserved to be in this group, but with or without her, it is a pretty impressive bunch of dancers. From a dancing perspective, as well as a ratings one, this has been a very successful season. And things only pick up from here.

I couldn't do screencaps this week, and ABC didn't have any images up yet, so instead we have a picture of DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba as Fook Yu in Goldmember. She's on the left. And just for crazy TV trivia buffs, Fook Mi was played by Diane Mizota, who you may remember as the host of G4's Filter, or as Katy on Undressed. Anyway, two dances for everyone tonight, so on with the show.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 7 Results

by Brett Love, posted Oct 26th 2006 7:18AM
Edyta & Alec(S03E14) And we're back for the big two week elimination show. It's a big week as it gets us down to the final four. After this, the competition gets serious. Anyone that makes it past tonight has a legitimate shot to win the whole thing. Emmitt & Cheryl kick things off after the judges pick them for the encore this week. That's a good choice. Emmitt has surprised me more than anyone else this season. He just keeps getting better.

Martina McBride takes the stage next to sing "This One's For The Girls." I wasn' t crazy about the dress. It looked like something from the Star Trek Maternity line. Wardrobe snafu aside, that's a good song. The musical guests this season have been really good. Being a top five show has it's perks.
