Did you watch The Masked Singer after the Super Bowl this past Sunday? A lot of people did, according to the ratings. Forget the Chiefs or the 49ers — The Masked Singer was the real winner.
The Season 3 premiere of the show (in which celebrities perform while wearing disguises) aired after the big game on Sunday night. Judges Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke returned to the panel.
According to Deadline, Sunday’s episode of The Masked Singer averaged 23.7 million viewers. That’s a 7 percent increase from the audience for last year’s post-game premiere of The World’s Best on CBS. The Masked Singer also had an 8.1 rating among adults 18-49, which is a 16 percent improvement from The World’s Best.
