The Masked Singer is a god sent for the network – just as if it seemed like Channel 10 was on its way to fourth place in the end-of-year reviews (behind the ABC, Seven and Nine) the show changed the game.

A former senior TV director said the idiosyncratic South Korean format may have saved the struggling network from a disaster year.

Rob McKnight, editor of the industry website TV Blackbox, Daily Mail Australia told: & # 39; It may be the antidote that the network desperately needs. & # 39;

He added that Australian Survivor also contributed to supporting the network after a & # 39; difficult start to the (ratings) year & # 39 ;.

According to McKnight, The Masked Singer is so successful because it is family friendly and there aren't that many shows nearby.
