Update: FOX’s “The Masked Singer” predictably drew massive ratings for its first season finale.
According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the show drew a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 8.60 million viewers in the 8PM hour.
It then improved to a 3.6 in the demo and 11.45 million in overall viewership at 9PM.
The show easily ranked as Wednesday’s #1 show in both adults 18-49 and total viewers. It also registered series highs, besting the 3.0 rating and 9.36 million viewer average garnered by the series premiere.
Wednesday’s show revealed the identities of the final three contestants: The Monster (T-Pain), The Peacock (Donny Osmond) and The Bee (Gladys Knight). T-Pain was crowned the inaugural winner.
“The Masked Singer” has already been renewed for a second season.
Given its strength throughout the season, it should come as no surprise that the season finale of FOX’s “The Masked Singer” fared well in the ratings.
According to metered market data posted by Programming Insider, the two-hour finale averaged a 7.0 overnight household rating. It fared particularly well in its usual 9-10PM timeslot, averaging a 7.9 within that one-hour window.
Besting the 6.4 household rating drawn by the series premiere, the performance represents a new high for the series.
Due later this morning, the adults 18-49 and viewership numbers are also expected to represent series highs. It should definitely win the night in both columns.
