What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC reality TV show competition The Great American Baking Show (fka The Great Holiday Baking Show) is a US adaptation of The Great British Bake Off. Formerly known as The Great Holiday Baking Show, the series features bakers from around the country going head to head in holiday-themed challenges and eliminations, with the goal of being crowned “America’s Best Amateur Baker.” Anthony Adams returns alongside new co-host, the Spice Girls’ Emma Bunton. Meanwhile, pastry chef Sherry Yard joins returnee Paul Hollywood on the judges’ panel.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of The Great American Baking Show is averaging a 0.70 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.69 million viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 14% in the demo and even in viewership. Find out how The Great American Baking Show stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Last year, ABC cancelled The Great American Baking Show, or at least the third season, after only two episodes had aired. That was due to allegations against one of the host/judges though, who was promptly fired. It shouldn’t have any impact on whether ABC cancels or renews the show for season five, unless the audience fails to return. Flying blind, I suspect it will get a renewal. The series cannot be that expensive to produce (especially in comparison to scripted programming). Also, this year the network has added the subtitle, “Holiday Edition,” which seems to suggest they’ll be rolling out a non-holiday edition during the year. Since that’s just speculation, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsen ratings and update this page with any developments.
