The series features skilled amateur cooks competing in baking challenges. The U.K. version of the series, The Great British Bake Off, has been a ratings draw for BBC2, with its third season finale on Oct. 16 earning a 25.3% viewership share, a series high.
Various iterations of the format are also airing in Denmark, Sweden (where it is the highest-rated show in TV4 history), Belgium and Poland, and sold in Australia, Ireland, Norway and France.
CBS previously picked up reality competition series The Job from executive producers Michael Davis and Mark Burnett for midseason.
