Fans of “The Masked Singer” who are bummed tonight’s episode was pushed due to Game 7 of the World Series will get a treat next week, as Fox will be airing two episodes back to back to make up for your loss this Wednesday.
The first episode will air at 8/7c on Wednesday, Nov. 6 and be immediately followed by the second at 9/8c. Yes, that means freshman drama “Almost Family,” starring Brittany Snow, will be bumped next week.
Over the course of the 2-hour “Masked Singer” block of programming, all 11 remaining Season 2 contestants will compete, including The Flower, The Black Widow, The Leopard, The Flamingo, The Butterfly, Thingamajig, The Rotteweiler, The Ladybug, The Penguin, The Fox and The Tree. And two episodes means you’ll see two contestants eliminated and unmasked.
Anthony Anderson will appear as a guest panelist during the second episode.
Watch a teaser for next week’s episodes, featuring The Fox, above.
Fox’s oddball singing competition has been off for two weeks, including last Wednesday and tonight, thanks to this year’s World Series. With the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros going seven games in their battle for the Commissioner’s Trophy, Fox wanted to get the pre-empted “Masked Singer” episodes on air as quickly as possible, which is why they are broadcasting two next week, an individual with knowledge of the programming change tells TheWrap.
“The Masked Singer” will return with two back-to-back episodes next Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 8/7c on Fox.
