Fox’s The Masked Singer returned from its stint on the bench thanks to the World Series in fine fashion Wednesday, with its special two-hour block finishing as primetime’s top-rated program. Meanwhile, NBC’s Chicago trio were the the most-watched shows in each of their respective hours.
The results gave Fox the easy adults 18-49 demo win for the night in which all broadcast shows were in originals, NBC took total viewers.
The Masked Singer scored 2.0 ratings in both the 8 PM and 9 PM hours, with 6.97 million viewers and 7.22 million viewers, respectively. CBS’ Survivor (1.3, 6.80M) was second in the 8 PM hour ratingswise, jumping up two tenths from last week when Fox aired Game 7 of the World Series. Survivor‘s rating edged out Chicago Med (1.1, 8.03M), the night’s most-watched show, which like its Chicago brethren Wednesday fell a tenth week-over-week.
ABC’s comedy block featured The Goldbergs (0.9, 4.22M) and Schooled (0.7, 3.19M), both even, and Modern Family (0.9, 3.93M) and Single Parents (0.6, 2.64M), both down a tenth. They led into Stumptown (0.5, 2.83) which was even with last week but is one off the better broadcast shows this season for L+3 bumps.
CBS’ night also included SEAL Team (0.6, 4.52M), off a tenth, and S.W.A.T. (0.5, 3.84), which was even and behind time-slot leader Chicago PD (1.0, 6.64M) leading out from Chicago Fire (1.0, 7.64M).
The CW’s Riverdale (0.2, 800,000) was even while Nancy Drew (0.2, 630K) ticked up.
