Helen Hunt will be hunting for ancestors this week on Who Do You Think You Are?. Helen comes from a family in show business. She started acting as a child and is most famous for playing Jamie on Mad About You for which she won 4 Emmy Awards. Helen also has won an Academy Award.
Helen finds that her great grandfather bailed out the failing Nevada Bank. That bank would later merge with Wells Fargo Bank. Also Helen’s great-great grandmother was involved in the women’s right movement.
WDYTYA is on most NBC stations at 8 p.m. (eastern and pacific). Our local station (channel 10) isn’t put on WDYTYA this week. That means anyone in the Rochester area will have to watch the show the WDYTYA video page where it should be sometime on Saturday.
