    The Great American Baking Show (ABC starts 12/7/17)

    Watch The Great American Baking Show TV Show - ABC.com


    about The Great American Baking Show

    The Great American Baking Show (formerly titled The Great Holiday Baking Show) returns to ABC for a second season, premiering December 1st, 2016 at 9pm EST. In a magical, warm yet utterly dramatic eight-part series, a selection of the nation's best amateur bakers will compete in a series of themed challenges and eliminations as they look to be crowned America's Best Amateur Baker.

    Judges: Mary Berry and Johnny Luzzini

    Hosts: Nia Vardalos and Ian Gomez

    (It more closely resembles the drama light Great British Baking Show than any of the competition shows on Food Network. I really enjoyed it last December and look forward to it this December.)

    I tried to watch last year but I also don't like the hosts, so I stopped watching midway through the first one. Most people love Nia Vardalos (sp?) but I just really don't like her very much (wasn't blown away by her Greek Wedding movie like most people were). I will probably try again this year, as I'm searching for holiday spirit. ;-)

    I have no life either...lol I just said on the Top Chef thread that there is way to much on Thursday. I watch Project Runaway, Mom , Life in Pieces, Big Bang Theory and now these two. My PVR is getting a good work out tonight.

    Wonder when this one was taped. They were all hot and their cakes looked terrible. Mary did say there was a lot of humidity too.

    The nerves must have got to a lot of them too , hope they get better along the way. The British are way ahead of these guys in presentation too.

    Yeah, I don't buy the coats, blankets, and fires. Unless it was taped last winter, it's all staged.

    I agree that there's something not quite as impressive about this one, but I'm tolerating the hosts (although Nia still gets on my nerves for some reason when she tries too hard to be funny - I'd rather she just be real), so I'll keep DVRing it.

    I love Mary Berry and I loved the great British Baking Show, but this show was a little disappointing. The cakes were underwhelming. I didn't get that enchanted feeling that I got watching the British version. I'll keep watching though.

    ( I also do on demand watching...of PR and this show.)
