American Television Has Nothing On This British Cooking Show
"The Great British Bake Off" had more than 14 million viewers for its season finale.By Ryan Biek | October 27, 2016
The U.S. might need to step up its cooking show game. Apparently, the Brits do it better.
More than 14 million people — or about half of all of Britain's viewers — tuned into the BBC's "The Great British Bake Off" on Wednesday night to see the winner crowned.
By comparison, that episode got more viewers than any of the English national soccer team's matches in this year's Euro 2016 tournament. Do we hear a new national pasttime?
