TV Ratings: The Masked Singer Sinks to All-Time Lows (No Pun Intended)

In the latest TV show ratings, The Masked Singer‘s deal with the devil — which was trumpeted hours ahead of the West Coast airing — paid no dividends, as the Fox series slipped to all-time lows with 3.8 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating (per Nielsen finals).

Leading out of… that…, Domino Masters (1.6 mil/0.3) managed to hold steady.

Over on CBS, Survivor (5.4 mil/0.9, read recap) was up a tenth and led Wednesday in the demo. Beyond the Edge (2.2 mil/0.3) and Good Sam (1.7 mil/0.2) were steady in the demo, though the latter slipped to another new audience low.


NBC | Chicago Med (6.7 mil/0.7) , Fire (7.2 mil/0.8) and P.D. (6.1 mil/0.7)  were all steady in the demo, and Fire copped Wednesday’s largest audience.

ABC | The Goldbergs (3 mil/0.5), The Wonder Years (1.9 mil.0.3), Home Economics (1.7 mil/0.3) and A Million Little Things (1.8 mil/0.3) all were steady in the demo.

THE CW | Freddie Mercury: The Final Act drew 890,000 viewers (the network’s third-largest audience for a special this year) and a 0.1 rating.

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. Rudy Giuliani’s law license was suspended last summer in New York and in Washington, D.C. after it was determined he “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements,” in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign, regarding the 2020 election outcome.
