There isn't a single person on the panel who I think has a redeeming quality... but I might give this a cursory watch just because it's so different... on the DVR... which I can FF thru.

I like Ken Jeong and don't mind Nicole Scherzinger. Not so much the other 2.

This looks ridiculous, I'll watch it.

Looks worth a glance, but if they wait until the very end to reveal each singer ...

Surprised Daniel Dae Kim isn't attached, apparently he's been doing work to bring over several S. Korean shows since Good Doctor took off.

If one of these mother fuckers isn't William Hung, they are doing it wrong.

Are these going to be celebrities or "celebrities".

Pure crap and something that would have aired on FOX in the late 90's or early 2000's.

So this is a competition where they unmask one person an episode.

Re: The Masked Singer (FOX) -- celebrity singing game show

It's cute but the guessing segments are brutal. I did enjoy the judges being surprised as anyone that it kind of works.

The unicorn needs to be Kaitlin Olson after the bird comment.

Probably dickish, but i really want to see one of them fall.

Re: The Masked Singer (FOX) -- celebrity singing game show

I was amused when they'd guess somebody high-profile like "Lady Gaga", as if they don't realize what kind of show they're on.

I think the unicorn is

Tori Spelling... with the Beverly Hills comment. Also Tori means Bird in Japanese.


Deer totally sounds like

though the ravens thing completely throws me off. There was an earlier promo saying that the contestants combined for

I agree; that was my guess as well. From what I can recall of his singing, it sounded like him....
