“The Great American Bake Show” 2016 – 2017 Starts Today, December 1, On ABC.

For those missing the original “British Version” — though YouTube has 40+ episodes of “The Great British Bake Off” from years — the American version could be some form of consolation.

At least last year, i.e., 2015, the skills of the American contestants were nowhere close to that of their counterparts from the Ol’ country. Ditto, but, even more so, for the U.S. presenters. They don’t have the charm and flair of the inimitable Mel Giedroyc & Sue Perkins. C’est la vie.

I am recording the series. We did watch it last year.

This sad outcome had been anticipated going back to March of this year. I actually did a post about it on March 15, 2016.

Another blow to the poor license-fee supported BBC.

That Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc have confirmed that they will NOT present for the ‘Channel 4’ version is very heartwarming and makes me VERY PROUD. The right British thing to do. I like those two ladies and rooted for Sue to be on “Top Gear“. And this has reaffirmed that they are class acts. Bravo.

Read the nearly ‘1,000’ comments on the “Daily Mail” article.
