When will 'The Masked Singer' Season 2 Episode 5 air? Fans left disappointed after show skips a week
Worried why 'The Masked Singer' season 2 isn't on tonight? Well, you can blame the World Series for postponing this week's episode 5 to next.
Eager fans and viewers have been wondering why the famed reality Tv competition series isn't airing on Wednesday, October 23, and that's because the network will be airing live with Game 2 of the annual championship, and the pre-game show starts from 7.30 pm ET and the actual game will air at 8 pm ET.
While the Major League Baseball championship happens just once a year, this does sound like a decent reason to bump the fan-favorite series's episode to next week. But the sad news is that if the games go well, then this will not be the only week 'The Masked Singer' season 2's episode gets bumped.
Played between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros, this season the World Series started on October 22 and will last till October 30. If the team has four victories, which is needed to win the World Series, then the entire series would end even earlier.
But if the game stretches till the seventh match on October 30th, there's a high chance 'The Masked Singer' season 2 will be bumped once again and will air only on November 6th, instead of October 30th.
Though fans of the World Series are happy with the game airing live, fans and viewers of the famed series, 'The Masked Singer' aren't all that happy about their favorite series being removed from its usual slot.
Taking to Twitter by storm, fans revealed their disappointment with the series not airing. "Wow.. another day where a television show I wish to watch is postponed due to sp*rts. Honestly makes me sick... #TheMaskedSinger," wrote a fan.
"#TheMaskedSinger What a great disappointment, in such disbelief, SMH ( Why !!!!) Why fox why," shared a fan. Adding to that another said, "No! Stupid World Series!!!!! I was waiting for #TheMaskedSinger to come on. I was hyped for it all week."
"The second I woke up from my nap I rushed out into my living room to watch #TheMaskedSinger only to find out it's not on," wrote a fan. While another added, "Was so looking forward to watching The Masked Singer tonight. Damn World Series! #TheMaskedSinger."
"Fuck man where is my show?! I waited all week and after a day from hell I was looking forward to my favorite show #TheMaskedSinger," wrote a fan.
Adding to that another said, "I stayed awake despite a headache and exhaustion to watch #TheMaskedSinger Turn on #Fox and... it's.... baseball. Seriously I need @NickCannon and his #milliondollarshoes."
Even though the series isn't airing with the new episode this week, you can rewatch the previous episodes on Fox or Hulu.
