‘The Masked Singer’ Tops Wednesday Ratings; ‘Stumptown’ Season Finale Steady

ABC’s Stumptown ended its freshman season Wednesday delivering a 0.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 2.71 million viewers. The Cobie Smulders-fronted action drama, which was even with its penultimate episoded, bookended the network’s primetime lineup kicked off by The Goldbergs (0.9, 4.72M), which stumbled two-tenths in the demo. It was the same story for Schooled (0.6, 3.26M), while American Housewife (0.6, 2.82M) was steady.

Fox’s The Masked Singer (2.1, 7.81M) dropped a tenth from last week but still topped Wednesday’s ratings. The reality singing competition was followed by Lego Masters (1.2, 3.75M), which stayed on par with last week.

NBC’s Chicago trio fared well for the night as Chicago Med (1.4, 9.51M) ticked up and Chicago Fire (1.3, 9.10M) and Chicago P.D. (1.2, 7.82M) matched last week’s demo numbers. As an added bonus, Med and Fire saw their biggest audiences since December 2015, while P.D. earned its highest viewership since January 2016.

On CBS, Survivor (1.6, 8.13M) climbed a tenth to a season best in the demo and delivered its largest audience in two years. SEAL Team (0.7, 5.23M) and S.W.A.T. (0.5, 3.80M) dropped in the demo.

On The Masked Singer, one celeb is really bringing the energy as the T-Rex.

Many fans watching the show, as well as JJJ, think that it is a certain teen star.

Rita Ora accidentally ‘lets slip’ Masked Singer season two spoilers live on air

Rita Ora has let slip she will return as a judge on The Masked Singer when it returns to ITV for a second series later this year.

The kooky talent show, which sees celebs don a range of intricate disguises before showing off their vocal ability, was an unexpected hit for ITV earlier this year.

In fact, the programme became one of the biggest series on TV – pulling in millions of viewers each week.

Chatting on KISS FM as she hit the promo trail for her new single How To Be Lonely, Rita said: "I did that show because I thought it was just going to be so much fun, and it really was.

  • Rita Ora bares all in racy topless pic ahead of How To Be Lonely single release

  • Rita Ora's boobs erupt from Wonder Woman-like display as she promotes new song

"I've done The X Factor, I've done The Voice, I've done America's Next Top Model, I've done a lot of TV shows.

"And for me this didn't feel like I was making or breaking somebody's career, which is why I wanted to do it.

"These people are already established.

  • Rita Ora rubbishes Rafferty Law 'breakup rumours' with cheeky Instagram snaps

"It was literally just guessing and actually I was pretty good at it.

"Everyone thought I was crazy.

"At the beginning my guesses were far reached but honest to God I am really good at it."

  • Joey Essex parties at Rita Ora's house after messy London night out

Explaining how producer went to extreme lengths to keep the identities of each celeb a mystery, the Let You Love Me songstress said: "It was like some FBI thing.

"We couldn't be in the same building and their faces were covered."

Directly talking about series two, the blonde babe added: "I cannot confirm or deny, but surely… oh god what have I said?

"All I know is that I'm a massive fan, I've had the best time doing it, so if it comes back of course I'll definitely be there."

The Masked Singer Unmasks the Taco


The Masked Singer‘s got something to taco ’bout.

The Taco was unmasked in tonight’s episode, revealing himself to be none other than Tom Bergeron, host of Dancing With the Stars and former host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, hence all the dancing and VHS tapes in his clue packages. 

The panel didn’t even come close to guessing, which they all clearly felt bad about due to the fact that Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, and Nicole Scherzinger all know Tom personally. Nicole even won a season of Dancing With the Stars a decade ago, and had no idea. 

Tom also revealed that his friend who appeared in his clue package was actually Bob Saget. 

He’s the last singer from Group B to be unmasked before they move on to the Super Nine, the next level of the competition. The Kitty, the Banana, and the Frog all remain in the competition and will move on to the next round, joining the White Tiger, the Kangaroo, and the Turtle. 

Next week, we’ll get to meet Group C, which includes the T-Rex, the Rhino, the Bear, the Swan, the Astronaut, and the Night Angel, and over the next three weeks we’ll see three of those singers unmasked. 

Then, the Super Nine will return. 

You can see everybody who’s been revealed and who has still to be revealed by scrolling down!

The Robot: Lil Wayne

The first reveal of the season was the biggest star yet: Lil Wayne!

The Robot had lots of science references, including a periodic table, since he’s had so many records go platinum, but the clues were sort of irrelevant. It’s hard to mistake that voice.

The Llama: Drew Carey

The Llama appears to be a comedian on the radio (23.3 The Wool), and he really likes Seattle. He’s a fan of the movie Ghost

The panel decided it couldn’t be Howard Stern and guessed David Spade and Joel McHale. The internet immediately went Kelsey Grammar, because of the Seattle of it all, Danny Bonaduce, and Drew Carey. Though David Spade did play a man who turned into a llama in The Emperor’s New Groove

Miss Monster: Chaka Khan

Miss Monster’s got a big ol’ crush on the Monster/T-Pain, and she seems to have struggled with having to look and act a certain way in public. In week two, her clues heavily referenced royalty. In week three, she revealed she had performed with Robin Thicke. 

She sounds exactly like Chaka Khan, though some on the internet also hear some Tina Turner. She is not Dolly Parton, as Ken Jeong guessed. Sorry Ken.

The Elephant: Tony Hawk

He’s somebody with a passion who went from canvassing park benches to leading the charge of a massive movement, parading through the White House. Clues included two blue birds and 10 cent ice cream and a little bit of voguing, and he’s just an OK singer. 

Panel guesses included Lance Armstrong, Travis Barker, and Tommy Lee, as well as Beto O’Rourke, but no one got exactly there.

The Mouse: Dionne Warwick

She’s small and cute and might have something to do with football. Clues include the Warriors, 1979, and gold. She’s a good singer with an older-sounding voice. 

Guesses included Darlene Love, Dionne Warwick, Maya Rudolph. 


The Taco: Tom Bergeron

The Taco says he’s been a comforting part of our lives for decades. Clues include VHS tapes, an anchor, a Rubix cube, and a trolley. His second set of clues included a lot of dancing. He’s a pretty good singer with a very old school kind of voice. 

Nicole guessed Regis Philbin, who is currently 88 years old and retired. Ken guessed Martin Short, and Bob Saget was also guessed. And now, all we can hear is Tom Bergeron.

Super 9: The Frog

The Frog can clearly move and rap. His clues included a “newsflash,” leftovers, $106, and a poster from the 1996 Olympics. 

Our first guess is Bow Wow, who hosted 106 & Park and can obviously rap. Jenny guessed Olympic athletes Michael Johnson, and Nicole was sure it was someone she knows, though she couldn’t figure out who, then she settled on Ray J. Robin guessed Omarion, and another new guess is Alfonso Rib(bit)eiro. 


Super 9: The Kitty

The Kitty is tired of being seen as what she once was, instead of who she is now. She wants to wipe the slate clean. Clues include a telescope with a wizard, rose petals, and a stage. She likes to sew “a modern dress for a family member’s ball,” and transformations ring a bell for her. She’s a pretty good singer, too, and says this is a side no one has ever seen before. 

Panel guesses originally included Julianne Hough, Paris Hilton, and Nicole Richie, then changed to Ariel Winter or Sarah Hyland and Amanda Seyfried. Sarah Hyland sounds close to us, or maybe Lucy Hale, though we’d expect a lot more PLL clues. 


Super 9: The Banana

Banana’s a bit of a partyer, says he’s tough on the outside but a smoothie on the inside. Clues include a blue collar, a blowfish, rodeo, lots of fruits and vegetables. He was offered a rebrand at one point, and the numbers 2, 13, 6, 8, 9, and 15 showed up. He’s got an unexpectedly good voice. 

Guesses include Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, Ed Helms, and Darius Rucker. 

Article continues below


Super 9: The White Tiger

It’s official: The White Tiger cannot sing, and he can only sort of rap. He’s clearly huge and likely an athlete, and is a “clam shucking” champion, which makes you think of New England. He loves a celebration dance.

Jamie Foxx guessed Rob Gronkowski and the panelists continued that guess in week two. Gronk is from upstate NY, he’s a football champ, and “Ice Ice Baby” seems exactly like a song he’d sing.


Super 9: The Turtle

He’s definitely got some singing chops, and he took things “step by step” while others crashed and burned. He also grills burgers, and he likes to surf OR he won a Teen Choice Award. He says he and Nicole Scherzinger spent a morning together. 

It sounds like Jesse McCartney, Jesse McCartney has multiple Teen Choice Awards, was in the boyband Dream Street, and spent a morning with Nicole (and the Pussycat Dolls) on The Today Show in 2008. It’s gotta be Jesse McCartney. 


Super 9: The Kangaroo

The Kangaroo is a tough one! She lost someone close to her, “by her own admission” found herself in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, and now she wants to bounce back. She references her bullies and being a survivor, and her little brother is so proud of her. 

A lot of people immediately went for Jordyn Woods, who lost her father recently and then found herself in an unfortunate spotlight, but that voice does NOT sound like Jordyn to us. It also doesn’t sound like Tatyana Ali, one of the panel guesses. She has stumped us.

‘Masked Singer’ Unmasks Mouse, Another Legend Cut Too Soon (Spoilers)

“The Masked Singer” proved again Wednesday that being a legend in one’s field can be hazardous.

The costumed celebrity competition booted off another giant in entertainment ― perhaps the biggest one of all so far.

Lil Wayne and Chaka Khan had already exited the third season — but in terms of career achievement, this one tops them both. So who is this venerable icon? Find out below.

Her clues package included prayer hands in a picture frame.

Her performance of “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” was a dead giveaway, really.

The Mouse could have been cheesed that she got eliminated, but she didn’t squeak about it during the unmasking.

Turns out, it was R&B goddess Dionne Warwick, a multiple Grammy winner with two Billboard No. 1 hits and 12 in the Top 10, including “Say A Little Prayer For You.” (Remember those prayer hands in the clues package?)

“I had the best time,” the 79-year-old icon said after the unmasking was over. “It was a ball.”

Maybe if her Psychic Friends were still around, they could have predicted the outcome.
