Highly rated (90%), The Baker and the Beauty still gets cancelled due to low viewership ratings
The Baker and The Beauty received excellent audience scores, making it one of the best-rated shows of the year. One viewer mentioned “if you need a place to hide away and have fun looking at what a family can really be, this is your place. With some fantastic fairy tale that some of you can dream on, with a lot heart writing and a lot of comedy comments.”
However, the show did not attract enough viewers to justify a renewal and ultimately got cancelled due to lower viewership ratings. In the Monday 10pm time slow, The Baker and the Beauty did not perform as well as other shows including The Good Doctor (ABC – renewed for season 4), Bull (CBS – renewed for season 5) and Manifest (NBC – renewed for season 3). The Baker and the Beauty received only about half of the viewers on these other TV shows.

She stated “the world is waking up to the importance of diversity and representation on our televisions. We want networks to commit wholeheartedly to ensuring that BIPOC, LATINX and LGBTQ+ people, and other marginalized groups, get a chance to tell our stories”.
