Audience Reviews for Baking It: Season 1

    Andy Samberg and Maya Rudolph are the best hosts I have ever watched! The show is entertaining, but the way these two play off each other, and engage with the participants is NEVER boring. I've tried watching many other shows like this, and the host(s) get redundant and stale, making the show difficult to remain interested in. Just a happy pair of people. I highly recommend watching them [on this show]...and I hope they'll be asked to host others

    Having now consumed all but the final episode this is probably my favorite iteration of this genre. It does a good job of acknowledging the drama there is, but the stakes never feel painstakingly high and the tone remains one more of fun and creativity than something that is purely about the pressure to perform. The panel of judges being highly qualified grandmas makes it much better than it's namesake Making It- which suffers from some less than charismatic judging. I will say one team made it WAY too far before being eliminated when you compared their performance to others and it showed in the pins/broaches (the trophies they get for winning) but worked out in the end. A lot of shows like this would benefit from a judging system that trails week-to-week like racing based off points to reward some of the more consistent contestants from being eliminated by a single mediocre bake/craft. Samberg and Rudolph are there purely as comedy, if you enjoy their brand of comedy you'll still enjoy it here. But this is much more wholesome. It shoots the gap between Nailed it and Great British Bake-off. We've enjoyed every episode and will be anxiously awaiting a renewal.

    This is a show where instead of showing us new techniques or unmitigated disasters, the hosts spend time with badly planned comedic interludes and. Song and dance numbers. The judges are a number of retired professional bakers who love everything and at the end, lower the boom. It's somewhat entertaining.
