The baking reality program The Great American Baking Show will offer its own holiday-themed episode this year, The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday, with celebrities testing their baking skills under the watchful eye of Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. But where can you find it and when does it stream?

Yes, but only if you like to look at scrumptious deserts being made by inept amateur star chefs. Six celebrities — SNL’s Chloe Fineman, actor Nat Faxon, Fire Island star Joel Kim Booster, NFL player Marshawn Lynch, social media influencer Liza Koshy, and The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden — attempt to dazzle judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith enough for them to earn the coveted title of Star Baker.

Hosted by The Office‘s Ellie Kemper and Severance actor Zach Cherry, The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday runs approximately 60 minutes. Regular episodes of the series will stream on The Roku Channel sometime in 2023, with Kemper, Cherry, Hollywood, and Leith returning to judge amateur bakers.

Netflix is about to release Waco: American Apocalypse — here’s when you can watch it
David Koresh looks at the camera in Waco: American Apocalypse.

Nearly 30 years ago, an unspeakable tragedy occurred in America's heartland. On February 28, 1993, the federal and state authorities began a siege on a compound in Waco, Texas belonging to the Branch Davidians, a religious cult led by David Koresh. The siege turned into a standoff that lasted 51 days, which came to a dramatic end on April 19 when the FBI launched a tear gas attack to force them out. Instead, a fire was intentionally started by the Branch Davidians, resulting in the loss of 76 lives.

The tragic story is now getting the Netflix docuseries treatment courtesy of director Tiller Russell, who made 2021's excellent true crime documentary Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer. Russell's powerful new series reframing the Waco story with expert commentary and eyewitness testimonials will premiere soon on Netflix. But when? And how long is it? Digital Trends has all the information you need about Waco: An American Apocalypse.

Netflix is about to release Shadow and Bone season 2 — here’s when you can watch it
shadow and bone season 2 when you can watch netflix show 1

One of 2021's breakout hits was Netflix's Shadow and Bone, a big-budget fantasy series that appealed to fans of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight franchises. Adapted from Israeli American author Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone young adult novel, the eight-episode series told the story of Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li), a young orphan raised in Ravka who discovers she is a Grisha, which means one who has special abilities. She must eventually combat the ominous threat of Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes), who is also known as The Darkling.

The first season of Shadow and Bone was a bit hit with critics and audiences alike, becoming only the third show on Netflix to remain at #1 in the ratings for 12 straight days. Naturally, a second season was quickly ordered, and last year, production commenced on the highly anticipated follow-up season. Fans know Shadow and Bone season 2 is just around the corner, but when exactly will it be released? And what additional information is out there about the season? Digital Trends has all the answers for you.

6 shows you can no longer watch anywhere
shows you can no longer watch ed tv show

In the streaming era, it can feel like literally everything is just a touch and a subscription away. You can watch thousands of different shows on Netflix, a movie on HBO Max, or even just check out a great video on YouTube. Even as we're drowning in content, though, there are some shows that have virtually disappeared altogether. The shows on this list are nearly impossible to watch and are an important reminder that the history of TV is not defined by the stuff we can still see. Seinfeld may be streaming, but each of these great shows most definitely isn't.
