The Mushroom was unearthed and the Crocodile lost its snap, as the Sun shone brightest to win season 4 of “The Masked Singer” on Wednesday night.

With last night’s two-hour curtain call, “Masked Singer” drew its largest audience since late November, scoring 7.1 million total viewers in the second hour. A 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 also represented a three-week high for the mystery singing show. The first hour brought in 5.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating. However, it’s also worth noting that the finale was down a good chunk from the season 3 ender, which scored a 2.3 rating and just under 9 million viewers.
