Fox’s “Masked Singer” Season 3 finale on Wednesday grew in ratings from its Season 2 finale back in December. The show’s first official spring finale definitely could not hang with Season 1’s gigantic midseason-set finale, however.

Last night’s series premiere for Fox’s “Ultimate Tag” sure enjoyed its strong lead-in. We’ll find out how well it can do without “The Masked Singer” next week.
