‘The Great American Baking Show’

Across the pond, “The Great British Bake Off” is in flux (changing networks, hosts that have quit). Who knows when it will return, and what it will look like? This American version of this competition seeks to fill the void and satisfy the sweet tooth. Chief among this version’s good things is British cookbook author/judge Mary Berry. Johnny Iuzzini joins Berry as judge. Husband and wife actors Nia Vardalos and Ian Gomez are the hosts. On your mark, get set, bake! Two-hour season premiere, 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, on ABC.
