Fox’s “The Masked Singer” is like a unicorn itself — the oddball singing competition just grew again, this time in its fifth week.

“Masked Singer” posted a 2.6 rating — up 13 percent from last week — and scored 7.8 million viewers. That overall-eyeball figure is a 10 percent jump from Week 4’s tally.

Fox finished first outright in primetime averages. It certainly helped that NBC aired three “Chicago” repeats last night. Find out who was under the “Masked Singer’s” unicorn head here.
