TV Ratings: ‘Lego Masters’ Builds Strong Debut Behind ‘The Masked Singer’

Lego Masters” laid the foundation for a strong debut season with its series premiere.

The Lego-based competition series hosted by Will Arnett premiered on Fox Wednesday night to a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.8 million total viewers behind the network’s biggest show in “The Masked Singer.” Following its colossal post-Super Bowl audience of around 24 million, “Masked Singer” was of course going to see a significant drop-off, but still managed to score 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.0 rating, which is above its season 2 average of 7 million viewers and on par with its average rating from last season.

For comparison, the second episode of CBS’ “The World’s Best,” which also premiered after the Super Bowl in 2019, dropped off 75% to 5.6 million viewers from 22.2 million. So all things considered, “The Masked Singer,” which unmasked the Llama last night, didn’t fall off too precipitously.

Meanwhile, ABC aired its second episode of “The Bachelor” this week to a 1.3 rating and 5 million total viewers, which represented the highest-rated non-Fox show of the night. The dating show slipped a little from Monday in both metrics. An episode of “Stumptown” followed it up with a 0.4 rating and 2.3 million total viewers, on par with its last episode from two weeks ago.

Over on NBC, the ever-reliable “Chicago” trifecta all came in at a 1.1 rating, even on last episode. “Chicago Med” drew the most pairs of eyeballs with 8.6 million, followed by “Fire” with 8.1 million and “P.D.” with 7.1 million.

CBS aired its “Survivor at 40” special, following a highly controversial season 39, to a 0.6 rating and 3.9 million viewers. Back-to-back episodes of “Criminal Minds” scored a 0.6 and a 0.5.

Finally on the CW, “Riverdale” and “Nancy Drew” both came in roughly even on last week, with the former scoring a 0.2 and 680,000 total viewers and the latter a 0.1 and 630,000.
