The Masked Singer

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Fox

Season Premiere

Our favorite costumed reality show/fever dream is back for season 5 with some major changes. First up, Niecy Nash will be hosting the first half of the season, as Nick Cannon is out recovering from COVID-19. And for the first time, the show will feature an unknown number of wildcard rounds, which will have new masked celebrities introduced during the run of the season. There are 10 total non-wildcard contestants split into two groups: Russian Dolls, Seashell, Raccoon, Snail, and Porcupine in Group A; and Piglet, Chameleon, Phoenix, Black Swan, and Grandpa Monster will round out Group B. The show is also introducing its first "clue-meister" character, Cluedle-Doo! Not a contestant but rather a costumed celeb, he'll give audiences new clues the panelists won't see and might even crash the stage to help — or mess with — Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke. And like always, the contestants have some pretty crazy résumés. This season's contestants boast a combined 26 Grammy nominations, four Academy Award nods, three Super Bowl appearances, and more achievements. The Masked Singer recently teased a performance from Russian Dolls, and fans already have plenty of guesses for who might be under the costume. —Rachel Yang

Chicago P.D.


When a fellow Chicago P.D. officer is caught on camera shooting — or did he?! — an unarmed Black man, Ruzek and Atwater are charged with arresting him, leading the two to butt heads about racial bias and the responsibility of all officers to speak up about excessive force and brutality among their ranks. But things become more complicated not just by the nature of the cast, testing their partnership in the process, but also when it becomes clear that someone does want them to make it back to the station.

Last Chance U: Basketball

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Docuseries Debut

Last Chance U may have scored its final goal last year, bringing its five-season look at the world of junior college football to a close. But the series has rebounded with the debut of Last Chance U: Basketball. Over eight episodes, the East Los Angeles College Huskies — made up of former D1 recruits and powerhouse athletes — will chase an unprecedented California state basketball championship while battling adversity, inner demons, and emotions both on and off the court. All the while, hustling for a chance to fulfill their dreams of playing at the next level.

American Cynicism Has Reached a Breaking Point

  American Cynicism Has Reached a Breaking Point The nation’s politics is in dire need of earnestness. Can its culture meet the moment?This anti-investigation, like so much of what happens on Carlson’s show every day, was funny right up until it was frightening. (Just before informing his viewers of his inability to locate QAnon.com, Carlson had attempted a rebranding of disinformation itself: “Freelance thinking,” he called it.) The most basic of good-faith searches would have revealed the reality—and the danger—of a widely believed conspiracy theory positing, in part, that Democrats eat children. But reality is not Carlson’s project. Destabilizing it is.

The Masked Singer Unmasks the Grandpa Monster After Some Questionable Clues .
The Masked Singer just sent Grandpa Monster home as a wildcard contestant takes his place.Some fans had figured out that the Grandpa Monster was famous/infamous Youtuber Logan Paul, but it became extremely clear with this week's installment. He revealed his love of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his love of fighting, and sang about his "Bad Reputation" before being voted off the show. He also, for some reason, started a feud with Piglet.
