Tuesday TV Picks: ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ on TLC
TV picks for Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, include “Who Do You Think You Are” on TLC, “Face Off” on Syfy and “Perception” on TNT.
Tonight in Prime Time
‘Who Do You Think You Are?’
This celebrity/ancestry show (produced by Lisa Kudrow) has moved to a new network but retained its odd appeal. How interesting was it to see comedian Chelsea Handler investigate her German roots a few weeks back? Tonight Chris O’Donnell (“NCIS: Los Angeles”) looks into his family history. 9 p.m. on TLC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
