According to 'E-Daily', FOX's 'The Masked Singer', premiered on January 3rd, reached a viewer rating of 3.0% with about 9.4 million viewers tuning into the episode. This record is known as the highest number for a variety program  since 'The X Factor', which aired seven years ago on the same channel.

american version wasn't good..at..all.

Just extremely showy, and changed it up so only one contestant gets eliminated.

It was just meh, not as entertaining as I hoped it would be. And whyyy give so many clues of who they are? It takes away from the mystery in my opinion.
