In part due to the ongoing pandemic, FOX is changing things up a bit for season four of The Masked Singer. Viewers at home can sign up to vote on their favorite performances and the panelists will try to win a trophy of their own throughout the season, by guessing the greatest number of singers correctly. Will these ratings affect the ratings? Is The Masked Singer guaranteed to be renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A costumed singing competition, The Masked Singer is hosted by Nick Cannon and features panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Robin Thicke. The show features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist — each singer is covered from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with a full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. The costumed characters in season four include Baby Alien, Broccoli, Crocodile, Dragon, Giraffe, Gremlin, Jellyfish, Lips, Mushroom, Popcorn, Seahorse, Serpent, Snow Owls, Squiggly Monster, Sun, and Whatchamacallit.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
