    I LOVED this show! And my husband was as enthralled with it as I was. I actually started searching this morning to see when the 2014 series would begin. PLEASE don’t tell me they have cancelled yet another of my favourites.

  2. Jeanette says

    Considering people were having affairs (about 3 different married people) no I do not think the show should air again.

    The American Baking Competition is an excellent show! I’m not a fan of t.v. programing, yet I could not wait each week to watch this program. Please continue the ABC for the many home bakers like myself. It’s so inspiring!

    I love cooking competitions, but they are loaded with bad language and nasty people so I don’t watch them. This was great, it’s like sitting in an audience watching your friends compete. It was very refreshing for those of us who are tired of classless people with bad attitudes. Love the show, hope it gets renewed.

    I loved watching the show. It was simple, but interesting and entertaining with people who were all different personalities, while being believable and real. I’m sorry that the last episode has aired and am holding out hope it will return for another season
