Fox’s “The Masked Singer” and the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on NBC were the top entertainment programs in delayed viewing for the week of Dec. 31.

In Live+3, the Golden Globes rose to a 5.4 rating in adults 18-49, putting them just below NFL coverage for the week. “The Masked Singer” rose to a 3.9 rating which, as previously reported, is the biggest Live+3 gain of any unscripted premiere ever.
