No other programming stood a chance on Wednesday’s primetime broadcast schedule as Fox’s Season 3 finale of The Masked Singer dominated both the 18-49 demo and total viewers. The finale, which revealed the winner as singer/reality star Kandi Burruss as Night Angel, rose slightly over December’s Season 2 finale (8.36 million) but down nearly 3 million from the first season finale on February 27, 2019 (11.47 million).

Also performing well was Fox’s premiere of its summer reality competition show, Ultimate Tag, which won the 9 o’clock timeslot in both 18-49 demo and total viewers. The season finale of CBS’ S.W.A.T. also won the 10 o’clock hour in both key demo and total viewers.
