The Masked Singer ratings lead the night but take a hit as network shows return from hiatus. The show dropped 7/10ths of a point–from 3.0 to 2.3 in the 18-49 demo–but still won the night for FOX.

FOX’s The Masked Singer followed up its massive series premiere a week ago with another dominant Wednesday night win, despite taking a sizable hit week-to-week.

The reality-competition series led the night’s primetime ratings with a 2.3 in adults 18-49 and 7.06 million viewers. Despite being down seven-tenths from its premiere’s 3.0 last week – when it was facing considerably less primetime competition – “The Masked Singer” still beat all of the night’s other shows by at least a whole point, maintaining it as a strong primetime presence.
