“The Masked Singer” dropped in the ratings from its season 2 premiere, but still managed to come out on top on Wednesday night.
The wacky Fox singing competition show posted a 1.9 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, down 24% on last week, and 6.75 million total viewers. It served as a solid lead-in to the network’s new drama “Almost Family,” which posted a similar debut rating to all the other new shows this fall at a 0.8 and just under 3 million total viewers.
Meanwhile on ABC, a fellow newcomer in “Stumptown” remained stable, scoring the same 0.7 rating as a week ago and a touch under 4 million total viewers. There also wasn’t much movement earlier in the night for the Disney-owned network, as “Modern Family” came in at a 1.1, “The Goldbergs” at a 1.0, and both “Single Parents” and “Schooled” managed a 0.8 rating.
On CBS, “Survivor” came top with a 1.2 rating, followed by the season premieres of “Seal Team” and “S.W.A.T.,” neither of which performed particularly well with 0.7 and 0.6 ratings respectively.
Finally, it was more of the same on NBC, as its “Chicago” trifecta posted almost identical ratings to last week. “Fire” scored a 1.1, while “Med” and “P.D.” both posted a 1.0.
Fox was the top network on the night with a 1.4 average rating, followed by NBC with a 1.0. CBS and ABC tied for third with a 0.8 average.
