The Taste: Season Three Renewal for ABC Series

The Taste TV show on ABC: season threeFOX won’t be the only network with a cooking competition next season. ABC has renewed The Taste for a third season.

The Taste is a culinary competition that pits professional and amateur cooks against one another in weekly challenges. The most recent judges/mentors were Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, and Marcus Samuelsson. Brian Malarkey, the winning coach from the first season, was replaced by Samuelsson.

The show’s first season averaged a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.51 million viewers. It was renewed for a second season which started airing this past January. The sophomore year drew just a 1.1 demo rating (down 32%) with 3.69 million (down 18%).

Despite this very poor performance, the network has decided to bring The Taste back for a third season. It’s slated to return mid-season, likely as a timeslot placeholder.

What do you think? Do you like The Taste? Are you glad that it’s coming back for a third season, or do you think it should been cancelled instead?
