Random Detail of the Day: What TV show should my TV characters watch?
American BakeOff is a show I made up for the characters on my shows to watch and obsess over. Cooper and Violet can't stop talking about it. Callie and Arizona watch it. Olivia Pope mentions it and eventually you'll see that Abby can't get enough of it.
I'm obsessed with the idea that we watch people bake things. I even pitched American BakeOff to ABC a bunch of times (and by pitched, I mean that I yelled AMERICAN BAKEOFF at Bob Iger while on a plane with him and then again at any executive who would listen -- and really who would listen to me screaming "THEY BAKE THINGS AND WE WATCH THEM!!!" like a lunatic? Because my BakeOff love is not normal and thus, makes me seem weird and slightly delusional when I rant about it. Betsy Beers has kindly asked me to stop bringing it up in public. Hmmm, this might could as public. Oh, well).
But do you know what happened? DO YOU KNOW?
Turns out, now there is actually going to BE a REAL tv show called American BakeOff on another network! I'm sure it is totally different from my BakeOff in EVERY way (maybe they don't bake things while we watch -- maybe they bake things in secret).
But the point is, THERE IS NOW A REAL AMERICAN BAKEOFF. Which means I don't know if my characters can watch American BakeOff anymore.
