TV Ratings: 'Masked Singer' Slips But Stays No. 1 in Demo
The Masked Singer stayed on top of Wednesday's 18-49 ratings, but the Fox show drew its smallest numbers in two months. CBS' Survivor and ABC's comedy block also declined a little as TV usage — while still above its pre-pandemic level — continues to come down slowly from its peak in late March.
The Masked Singer delivered a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.08 million viewers, its smallest same-day numbers since March 4 (not including an April 15 clip show). The After the Mask aftershow was also down for Fox, coming in at 0.9 in the 18-49 demographic and 4.03 million viewers.
Survivor aired two episodes on CBS, and the 8 p.m. installment was down slightly in viewers (7.91 million, vs. 8.08 million last week) and even in the demo at 1.5. The 9 p.m. episode drew 7.24 million viewers and a 1.4 in adults 18-49. SEAL Team averaged 4.57 million viewers and a 0.6 in the demo at 10 p.m., also down from a week ago (when it aired in its regular 9 p.m. slot).
The Goldbergs (0.8 in 18-49, 4.35 million viewers) held steady for ABC, and an 8:30 p.m. airing of Single Parents episodes benefited from the lead-in to score an above-average 2.88 million viewers, along with a 0.5 in the demo. American Housewife (0.5, 2.83 million) had its smallest Wednesday audience of the season. A second Single Parents at 9:30 was down week-to-week at 0.4 in the demo and 2.23 million viewers. An airing of Shark Tank (0.5, 2.4 million) at 10 p.m. was well below the show's usual ratings.
Riverdale posted a 0.2 in adults 18-49 on The CW, even with last week. NBC aired reruns in primetime.
Fox topped the night's 18-49 rankings with a 1.4 rating, ahead of CBS' 1.1. NBC finished third at 0.6, and ABC and Univision tied at 0.5. Telemundo averaged 0.3 and The CW, 0.1.
