The Masked Singer has confirmed a major schedule shake-up for its 100th episode.
The Fox singing competition, hosted by Nick Cannon, normally airs on Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m., but tonight the show will not be on.
Fans had been looking forward to the ’90s-themed episode and seeing celebrity panelists Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger dressed up in that decade’s styles.
Now, viewers will have to wait until this Sunday, November 6, to enjoy The Masked Singer‘s milestone edition and see the performers take to the stage.
Newsweek has everything you need to know about The Masked Singer‘s schedule shake-up.
Why Is The Masked Singer Not on Tonight?
The Masked Singer has moved its new episode because of Major League Baseball’s World Series, which is airing on Fox. Game 4 will take over The Masked Singer’s time slot tonight.
The Philadelphia Phillies will take on the Houston Astros at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, in a game that is scheduled to start at 8:03 p.m.
Masked Singer fans will likely be glad that the episode was moved, since the show’s Andrew Lloyd Webber Night was delayed because of another baseball game a few weeks ago.
On October 12, the singing competition was postponed because of a playoff game between the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies. Game 2 of the series was held up because of rainy weather, and Fox initially told fans that The Masked Singer would air at a later time on the same night. But the game ran on later than expected, and the episode didn’t air.
The following week, when fans tuned in for the postponed episode, baseball was on their televisions again, but this time The Masked Singer aired after the game had finished.
Newsweek has contacted The Masked Singer for comment.
Who Is Performing on The Masked Singer‘s 100th Episode?
On this Sunday’s episode of The Masked Singer, Walrus will take to the stage alongside a new character, Milkshake, and the Lambs, who were last week’s Queens.
Following performances last week, Masked Singer fans wondered whether the Lambs could be the band Haim (sisters Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim), the group Wilson Phillips or the Kardashian sisters (Kourtney, Kim and Khloé).
Meanwhile, viewers have predicted that Walrus’ fish clue is a hint that he is NSYNC star Lance Bass, Darius Rucker from the band Hootie and the Blowfish, or Sig Hansen or Johnathan Hillstrand from reality series Deadliest Catch.
Some also thought that the fish could be a hint for the show Catfish, hosted by Nev Schulman.
The Masked Singer’s 100th episode airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. The rest of the season will continue on Wednesday evenings at the same time.
