Wednesday’s edition of “The Masked Singer” gave back last week’s ratings gain — and then some.

It still posted strong numbers. It still dominated the Wednesday adults 18-49 ratings race.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s “Masked Singer” drew a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 7.06 million overall viewers.

Last week’s episode drew a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 7.89 million overall viewers. The numbers reflected decidedly rare, non-trivial midseason gains (the prior week’s broadcast drew a 2.3 rating and 7.14 million viewers).

The show’s sixth episode, Wednesday’s broadcast concluded with the revelation that Ricki Lake was The Raven. She joins previously “exposed” celebrities Antonio Brown (the Hippo), Tommy Chong (the Pineapple), Terry Bradshaw (the Deer), Margaret Cho (the Poodle), and Tori Spelling (the Unicorn).

The episode was Wednesday’s #1 show in adults 18-49. It took fourth place (beneath NBC’s “Chicago” dramas) in total viewership.
