Program has been averaging 1.8 million total viewers in its first run on TLC, and has thus far featured celebs including Kelly Clarkson, Cindy Crawford, Chelsea Handler and Zooey Deschanel.

The season one finale of “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC will feature Jim Parsons and air tonight at 9 p.m.
