In the latest TV show ratings, Fox’s The Masked Singer drew 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.6 rating per Nielsen finals(read recap), down just a tick opposite significantly stiffer competition and dominating Wednesday in the demo, as the CMA Awards took a deep plunge.

Over on ABC, the aforementioned CMA Awards (aka The Maskless Singer) dropped a good (but not) 37 and 45 percent from last year, hitting all-time lows of 7.1 mil and 1.1.
NBC | Chicago Med (7.8 mil/1.2, TVLine reader grade “B+”; read recap) returned steady, matching last season’s demo average and delivering Wednesday’s largest audience. Fire (7.2 mil/1.0, TVLine reader grade “A”; read recap) and P.D. (6.4 mil/1.0, TVLine reader grade “B+”; read recap) both returned down a tick from their previous averages.
CBS | The Amazing Race (3.7 mil/0.7, read recap) was steady. S.W.A.T.’s Season 4 opener (2.8 mil/0.4) and the second episode that followed (2.6 mil/0.4) both marked series lows in the demo.
THE CW | Devils (417K/0.1) and Coroner (554K/0.1) were both steady in the demo, though the latter drew its smallest Stateside audience yet.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Do not use Happy Fun Ball on concrete.
