The season finale for The Masked Singer pulled in more than a million metro viewers for Ten.

The reality singing competition was hit by an outbreak of COVID-19 on set, forcing it to suspend filming in late August. Despite this, Ten was able to wrap up the season.

Last night’s episode aired in two parts, with The Final Reveal attracting 1.191 million metro viewers overnight in total people, according to OzTam figures, making it the most watched program for the night. The second segment, the Grand Finale attracted 1 million metro viewers.

The Masked Singer was the top program for 18-49 year-olds, pulling in 552,000 metro viewers for the Final Reveal and 453,000 metro viewers for the Grand Final overnight. The Final Reveal segment attracted 612,000 metro viewers overnight in the 25-54 age bracket, while the Grand Finale segment attracted 503,000 metro viewers aged 25-54.

“In its second year, The Masked Singer Australia has cemented its position as one of the most popular family entertainment shows in the country,” says Beverley McGarvey, ViacomCBS AUNZ chief content officer and EVP.

“Great performances, a play along guessing game and one jaw-dropping moment after another is a winning combination across all platforms and with all ages …. COVID and the resultant lockdown in Melbourne created some significant challenges for us and I would like to thank our creative, imaginative and resilient crew, our partners at Warner Bros., and the team at 10 led by executive producer Stephen Tate.

“Thank you also to our viewers. Their enthusiasm for the show is incredible. We can’t wait to bring The Masked Singer Australia back in 2021.”

The show was followed by Nine’s The Block, which attracted 791,000 metro viewers in total. The renovation show attracted 367,000 metro viewers aged 18-49 and 414,000 metro viewers aged 25-54.

Seven’s Plate of Origin also aired last night, attracting a metro audience of 342,000 viewers, according to OzTam.
