In its first season, The Masked Singer was the highest-rated network TV show for the whole 2018-19 broadcast season. FOX wasn’t about to cancel a hit series and renewed it for season two and season three, both of which will air during the 2019-20 season. Will this end up being too much exposure and quickly kill this new series? Will The Masked Singer be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
A singing competition series with a twist, 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 two include Black Widow Spider, Butterfly, Christmas Tree, Eagle, Egg, Flamingo, Fox, Ice Cream, Leopard, Panda, Penguin, Rose, Rottweiler, Skeleton, and Thingamajig.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
