Last year, ABC launched a new TV show called The Great Holiday Baking Show which was based on a series. The ratings weren’t great but the network renewed it for a second season with a new name, The Great American Baking Show, and twice as many episodes. Will the numbers improve this time around? Will this series be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
On The Great American Baking Show, a group of the nation’s best amateur bakers compete in a series of themed challenges and eliminations. Their goal is to be crowned America’s Best Amateur Baker. The competition is hosted by married actors Nia Vardalos and Ian Gomez. The judges are Johnny Iuzzini and Mary Berry.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Last year comparison: The first season of The Great Holiday Baking Show averaged a 1.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.97 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
