From executive producer Amy Poeler - a baking show similar to the Making It production values. Bakers in family pairs, four Grandmas (expert bakers) as judges. Just as fun with Maya Rudolph and Adam Sandburg hosting.
P.S. I recognized one of the grandmothers from a Food Network cooking challenge show with competing chef teams.

BAKING IT is a holiday competition series in which eight teams of two talented home bakers join Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg’s winter cabin for a celebration of culinary holiday traditions. Contestant duos will include spouses, siblings, best friends and more, who will work together to create outstanding savory and sweet creations for themed challenges with the hopes of winning a cash prize. Maya and Andy will lead the festivities, also providing comedic and musical commentary on the action. The bakers’ holiday treats will be judged by tough critics – four opinionated real-life grandmothers, who happen to be fantastic bakers themselves!
Hosts: Maya Rudolph, Andy Samberg Executive Producers: Maya Rudolph, Andy Samberg, Amy Poehler, Nicolle Yaron, Pip Wells, Kate Arend and Dave Becky

This has been really enjoyable so far. I've watched 4 out of the 6 episodes. The baking teams are well cast and likeable, and have lots of creative ideas. The Judge Grannies are hilarious. Maya and Seth are reliably funny throughout. I'll watch the rest this weekend.
I have watched all but the last episode. I like the show but think they need to show us a little less of the hosts. It seems like they focus on them more than the actual baking...well they seem to focus on Maya more than the actual contestants.
I just started watching today. It's good fun. The one grandma with the white hair - maybe Anne? - reminds me of Margo Martindale. It's the voice. The grannies aren't just funny, they're pretty knowledgeable too.
I'm not a big sweets eater, so I can watch this and not get hungry. It's only a problem when they make something savory!
