The Masked Singer Love It Or Leave It? Review
January 2, 2019
Readers of PopCultureReview know we don’t usually discuss reality shows, let alone cover or review them. However, we felt that the oddity that is Fox’s The Masked Singer deserved some attention.
A reality singing show with celebrities (“celebrities”?) dressed as animals? A panel of judges?, professional guessers?, which includes Jenny McCarthy and Ken Jeong among its number? Just typing that out, I am thinking, “what the fuck is this show?” Well, our newest PCR contributor drew the short straw, Sheila, volunteered to give The Masked Singer a watch and see what it is about and whether it’s worth the hype that it is receiving.
To give you some context, in its most recent week (Week 3), The Masked Singer was themost watched show the entire night in the key 18-49 demographic. That is a night (Wednesday, January 16) which included brand new episodes of the NBC hits, Chicago’s Fire, PD and Med (these 3 shows did win the night for overall viewers).
This was the night that Peacock, Monster, Unicorn, Deer and Lion performed and Joel McHale joined as a guest panelist. There is a sentence I never thought I’d type. Without further delay, let’s find out if Sheila wanted to Love It Or Leave It? BEWARE OF SPOILERS!
What To Watch Tonight? Our Top Pick To Watch Tonight is the series premiere of Deadly Class (which we’ll be recapping) as well as All American, which returns from its Winter break tonight (catch up on our latest recap here). Also on, Riverdale, Vikings, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell & Back, The Masked Singer and The Dictator’S Playbook.
What To Watch Tonight? Our Top Pick To Watch Tonight is Vikings. In addition, we have all new Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell & Back, SEAL Team and The Masked Singer. At 10pm, a little random but we are going with the series premiere of Limited Series: The Dictator’S Playbook as our top pick.
What To Watch Tonight? Tonight’s choices aren’t great with most shows still in repeats but we do have some hope. Our Top Pick To Watch Tonight is Vikings. In addition, we have the season premiere of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell & Back as well as all new SEAL Team and the series premiere of a new competition show show, The Masked Singer … which seems like pointless fun. At 10pm, our nerdy selves are looking at PBS’s American Masters which is looking at DNA pioneer, James Watson.
