The Masked Singer's ratings plummet by 30 per cent as show returns to television

Channel 10’s The Masked Singer returned to screens on Monday night.

But despite months of hype and a new addition to its judging panel, the zany show’s second season debuted to disappointing ratings.

According to Mumbrella, figures show 823,000 metro viewers tuned in for the evening’s first ‘reveal’. However, 733,000 tuned in for the episode overall.

In 2019, the inaugural season, starring American actress Lindsay Lohan, brought in 1.162 metro viewers for its premiere.  

That’s a 30 percent decline from Monday night’s season two premiere. 

The show was up against the Australian Ninja Warrior’s finale, which brought in 1.99million metro viewers for the winner announcement.

However, it appears Channel Ten were happy with how the show performed given the competitive nature of the time slot.

‘The Masked Singer has roared back onto our screens with all the fun, spectacle and wackiness Australians have come to love from this show,’ Daniel Monaghan, Ten’s head of programming, said in a statement.

‘The Masked Singer Australia significantly lifted our audience in its timeslot and created real buzz on social media last night.’

‘The best is yet to come, with great singing, great dancing and lots of jaw-dropping moments as we reveal who is behind the masks.’

On Monday night’s episode, the Echidna was the first character to be revealed. 

Behind the mask was a sportsman with a surprisingly smooth voice – none other than tennis champion Mark Philippoussis. 

The Masked Singer continues Tuesday at 7:30pm on Channel 10
