This bizarre reality show has been a big success for FOX in the ratings but the public’s fascination with it has clearly waned since its premiere. Could The Masked Singer be cancelled or, is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed for season eight? How long will the network continue to air two cycles a year? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A mystery singing competition series, The Masked Singer TV show is hosted by Nick Cannon with Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Robin Thicke sitting on the panel. The show features singing celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist — each contestant 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. In season seven, the 15 costumed characters are split into three teams known as “The Good”, “The Bad”, and “The Cuddly”. The contestants include Armadillo, Baby Mammoth, Cyclops, Firefly, Hydra, Jack in the Box, Lemur, McTerrier, Miss Teddy, Prince, Queen Cobra, Ram, Ringmaster, Space Bunny, and Thingamabob.
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.

Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

*5/16/22 update: The Masked Singer has been renewed by FOX for an eighth season.
I wish the host and the judges would all be changed out. I could not stand watching the cast. They are very rude to people they do not like such as Mama June and Rudy Guiliani, but they love preditors and dealers. After goof ball Ken and cheater Robin walked off, I was done. Change the crew and I will come back. They are all so foolish.
As long as they keep inviting traitors like Giuliani on their show, I’m not watching!
So far he hasn’t made a appearance it may have been hype to draw focus on the show.
I loved this show AT first.The costumes ,the suspense of who is underneath the elaborate costumes ,the frantic texts between my friend and I. Now ,I can’t stand it. Jenny McCarthy is one of the main reasons I can not and will not watch anymore . She is not funny ,and what exactly is HER talent? she is very obnoxious.The utterly stupid and obnoxious HUGE hair (was that meant to be funny?? It was not!) ,and her NOT knowing own her husband was the equally annoying and obnoxious Cluedal Doo or whatever his stupid name was,was the end of my… Read more »
So because a rooster you don’t like was on last season you not watching this season mid way through the season. Odd that was a point.
The cast members are clowns. They ruin the show because they are not serious.
