The Masked Singer led Wednesday's primetime ratings in both adults 18-49 and total viewers, moving ahead of CBS' Survivor for the first time in a month in the latter measure. The night also included a 15-minute presidential address on the coronavirus pandemic, meaning some program ratings are likely inaccurate.

The Masked Singer scored a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic on Fox, up 0.1 from a week ago, and 7.22 million viewers, its second-highest total of the current cycle. Lego Masters (1.1, 3.68 million) is also up week to week, pending updates.

Survivor declined slightly compared with a week ago, coming in at 1.3 for adults 18-49 and 6.97 million viewers. SEAL Team (0.8, 5.36 million) and SWAT (0.6, 4.22 million) are showing improvements, subject to change; they were pushed back about 15 minutes in the eastern half of the country for the Oval Office address.

The CW's Riverdale (0.2 in adults 18-49) and Nancy Drew (0.1) were both steady and were the only other original shows on the broadcast networks. NBC aired repeats of its Chicago dramas, and ABC ran a night of fan-favorite Modern Family episodes (plus a half hour of news coverage).

Fox led primetime among adults 18-49 by a comfortable margin, scoring a 1.5 rating. CBS finished second at 0.9. ABC and NBC tied for third at 0.6. Univision and Telemundo also tied at 0.4, and The CW drew a 0.2.
