'It's Absolutely Empty & Meaningless': Why 'The Masked Singer' Is A Hit For Aussie TV

17 August 2020 | 9:34 am | Neil Griffiths

"It's just such a beautiful show."

The Masked Singer Australia was Channel Ten's biggest show of 2019 and it looks like it may very well be again in 2020 and host Osher Günsberg has a pretty good idea why.

Appearing on the latest episode of The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast to discuss the second season of the show, Günsberg said The Masked Singer is "such a perfect show for exactly this time in the world".

"It's just such a beautiful show," Günsberg told host Neil Griffiths.

"It's such a perfect show for exactly this time in the world, 'cause it's absolutely empty and meaningless. Nothing matters.

"There's a trophy, but there's no prize. It's just, 'Who is it? Let's find out.'"

Over 800,000 viewers tuned into the first two episodes of season two last week, which saw sporting legends Mark Philippoussis and Michael Bevan revealed as the first contestants.

"The other night we had an eight foot tall sloth on stage and in 90 seconds she did three costume changes, there was pyro, there was a confetti drop and a key change... no one is making TV like this," Günsberg said.
