If you were expecting Fox’s “Masked Singer” to take another week-to-week nosedive, we’ve got news for you: On Wednesday, the singing competition stayed mostly steady with its Week 2 numbers.

Slipping just 4 percent in the key demo (with a 2.2 vs. 2.3) and only 3 percent in total viewers (6.893 million vs. 7.070 million), “The Masked Singer” led Fox to another primetime win among adults 18-49. NBC pretty handily beat Fox in terms of total viewers, however.

Fox was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 5.2 million, according to preliminary numbers.
