“The Masked Singer” filled Fox’s primetime block Wednesday with a two-hour episode that led the network to an even easier Wednesday win in TV ratings than it had a week ago, according to initial Nielsen data.

During the Fox singing competition’s supersized installment, its final “Super 8” contestants competed and two were unmasked: Crab, who turned out to be Bobby Brown (pictured above), and Seashell, who was revealed as Tamera Mowry-Housley.

Though Fox crushed all of its primetime broadcast competition in the key adults 18-49 range with the doubled-up “Masked Singer,” NBC took first place in total viewers for the night with Dick Wolf’s block of “Chicago” universe shows.

Meanwhile, The CW’s new series “Kung Fu” stayed north of 1 million viewers with its third episode.

Fox was first in ratings with a 1.2 rating/8 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. From 8-10 p.m., “The Masked Singer” scored that rating and total viewer tally.
