Why 'The Masked Singer' Season 8 Episode 4 did not air?

'The Masked Singer' Season 8 Episode 4 did not air for US viewers, but it was certainly available for viewers in Canada. The episode did not air because of the baseball game airing at the same time. Game 2 of the series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves was delayed due to rain on October 12, pushing back the start time to 7.30 pm EST. Fox was also set to air a game between Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres starting at 8.37 pm EST. This meant that 'Masked Singer' couldn't be aired at the scheduled time.

Moreover, a fan lashed out the anger, "This makes me hate baseball even more now".
