Ratings: Fox’s ‘Masked Dancer’ Season 1 Finale Adds 400,000 Viewers From Last Week
But NBC wins another Wednesday with its “Chicago” shows
Fox’s “The Masked Dancer” concluded Season 1 in front of 3.1 million viewers, or about 400,000 more than last week’s penultimate episode got.
That doesn’t mean Fox finished first in primetime ratings last night. That distinction went to NBC, which won another Wednesday with its “Chicago Shows.” Fox actually didn’t even finish second in total viewers — CBS did.
