Although it premiered with significantly lower ratings than last year, it is still too early to use the numbers to predict whether ABC will cancel or renew The Great American Baking Show for a fourth season. Last year, while it dropped in the demo, its overall audience grew. There’s a reason networks typically put their big series on hiatus during the holidays. People are busy, so the audience is smaller and less predictable. That’s also why networks run specials, movies, and unscripted shows like this one — they cost less to produce. Unless this show really takes a dive, I think it is more likely than not to get a season four renewal. Since that’s just speculation, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments.

A poor copy of BBC’s show the pompous male host turned me off immediately. Poor choice of a host. One and done.

All that time they put in baking, have it just rip from then. Really. I agreed with Dave. You don’t leave viewer hanging like this.
