Tonight is the series premiere of – The Masked Singer on FOX at 9/8c. Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, the show is a top-secret celebrity singing competition that will have everyone asking, “who’s behind the mask?!” Based on an international format, and already a viral phenomenon with over half a billion fans worldwide, the series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Although the celebrities’ identities are a mystery, between them they have a combined 65 Grammy Award nominations, 16 Emmy Award nominations, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and four Super Bowl titles. The singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated by the audience and judges each week, based on their performance, and will then reveal his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”
Tonight is also the seris premiere of Mythbusters Jr on Science Chennel at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. Adam Savage will return to television as host and executive producer. For the ten-episode series Savage has teamed-up with six of the nation’s leading young ‘makers’, robotics wizzes, builders, and inventors, all under the age of 16, who show off their amazing ingenuity and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) skills. Together, they tackle myt9hs just like those seen in the popular Emmy(R) nominated television series MythBusters, ranging from driving, explosions, movies, popular culture and more. From building a fire extinguisher jetpack, to dominos big enough to crush a car, and testing myths from the Oscar(R)-winning big screen pic Gravity and TV’s Breaking Bad, it’s an action-packed season.
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of True Life/Now on MTV at 10/9c. Four episodes will uncover stories of real people immersed in today’s biggest social phenomena ranging from celebrity fanaticism to photo filter addiction.
