Return of US Who Do You Think You Are?

Dick Eastman is reporting a Facebook post by WDYTYA co-executive producer Dan Bucatinsky:

"WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?" on DVD ! And Season 3 coming soon. Look for an all new season in 2013!!! on an all new network!
Given the time taken for production, if this comes to pass, it would certainly go to air later next year.
The lesson from last season was that lesser celebrities don't attract the audience. Is someone prepared to put up the money to attract the better-known celebrities, in which case it could reappear on another major network. Or will they downscale to what is viable on a cable network in which case we can probably look forward to lots of reruns.
The producers might also consider importing some of the existing episodes from the British or other WDYTYA series, with appropriate reediting for the US market. After all, there is a precedent from the London Olympics for the US only getting tape delayed coverage from Britain!
