Christina Applegate was just looking for answers, but her episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” on Tuesday also delivered double-digit viewership and ratings increases to TLC.
Besting last week’s premiere episode with Kelly Clarkson by 38 percent, the episode attracted 2.2 million viewers (versus last week’s 1.6 million viewers).
The episode scored a 1.2 rating in the network’s target demographic of Women 25-54, a 50 percent increase over last week’s 0.8 rating.
On the episode, Applegate investigated the life (and death) of her paternal grandmother whom she nor her father knew. She discovers a dark family secret that shows just how far she and her father have come. You can watch the full episode online here.
