Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is the latest series from the renowned cultural critic and Harvard scholar. Professor Gates continues delving into the genealogy and genetics of an all-new group of famous Americans. Each hour features a different pair of celebrity guests, who are bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden link, whether it be as old friends, through long-lost relatives, or even through a common ancestral past. Tonight, Actors Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen and William H. Macy trace their nonconformist ancestors through American conflicts: the Civil War and the American Revolution, all the way back to the Puritan establishment.

Watch it tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2.
