PBS Suspends Finding Your Roots Amid Ethics Concerns Following Ben Affleck Controversy

PBS is pressing the pause button on Finding Your Roots in the wake of the Ben Affleck controversy.

On Wednesday, PBS announced it is postponing the third season of the show and any commitment to a fourth season after the public television service’s internal investigation into the episode featuring the Oscar-winning star found it violated ethics standards when it omitted any mention of his slave-owning ancestor.

Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon Are Distant Cousins

Who hasn’t played Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon – that game in which it appears everyone has a link to the handsome actor?

But Bacon’s own wife of 23 years (and mother of their two children, son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19), Kyra Sedgwick, has more of a link to her husband than she or anyone else might have imagined. They are distant cousins.

The revelation comes courtesy of the Sunday night PBS show on genealogy, Finding Your Roots.
