The premiere of Univision’s ¿Quién Es la Máscara? (The Masked Singer) raked in an average of 1.4 million viewers in its 2 1/2-hour debut Sunday. The premiere tied for second overall for the night among the Big 4 networks and the CW in the adults 18-49 demographic, which peaked in the 9 p.m. hour with a 0.4 rating.
The show, which ran from 8-10:30 p.m., is hosted by Omar Chaparro, with Yuri, Carlos Rivera, Consuelo Duval and Adrián Uribe serving as panelists. The singing competition debuted as part of the Spanish-language network’s Domingos en Familia (Family Sundays) block and helped the network beat Fox and the CW overall in viewers for the night.
Univision also finished as Sunday’s top Spanish-language network in all metrics.
Fox’s English-language version of The Masked Singer, is plotting a September bow despite the fact that the show, which scored an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Competition Program last week, has not yet begun production. Fox handed the upcoming Season 4 an 8 p.m. Wednesday slot for its fall schedule after it aired in the plum post-Super Bowl slot in February.
