Live+7 Ratings for Week of Dec. 31: ‘Masked Singer’ Premiere Grows by 40 Percent

The series premiere of “The Masked Singer” continued to pay dividends to Fox in the delayed viewing numbers.

In Live+7 for the week of Dec. 31, “The Masked Singer”–which already had the biggest Live+3 gain of any unscripted premiere ever–rose 40% from its Live+Same Day haul in adults 18-49 to a 4.2 rating. In total viewers, the show grew 38% to 12.96 million after seven days of playback. It ranked as the second highest-rated entertainment show and the fourth highest-rated show of the week overall.

The NFL continued to dominate the charts for the week, as did the Golden Globes, all of which saw virtually no lift from their initial ratings. “The Big Bang Theory” was up 64% in the key demo for a 3.6 rating, and NBC’s “Titan Games” grew 28% to a 2.3.

Read the full week’s rankings below.
