‘9-1-1’ Ranks as Fox’s Top Entertainment Program in 2021

by Amanda Glover

As many television shows go on a brief pause for the holidays, 9-1-1 ranks as one of the most popular series on FOX.

While the hit FOX drama goes on a month-long hiatus, fans are left with several burning questions. The last episode left many questions unanswered. Is Eddie (Ryan Guzman) really leaving the 118 for the sake of his son’s mental health? What will that mean for his friendship with Buck? (Oliver Stark) What’s been going on with Albert? What will happen with Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Chimney’s (Kenneth Choi) relationship? Will Chimney forgive Buck after he kept the secret that he knew Maddie was leaving?

Although the network has taken a few blows when it comes to high ratings, the series has managed to outdo many peers and competitors.

Luckily, fans won’t have to wait much longer to get answers. Well, unless 3 months. The drama is returning to television with all-new episodes in March 2022.

TV Line recently posted a list detailing FOX’s best and worst rated television shows. Looks like the series made the list as one of the bests. Apparently, the series was beaten by Thursday Night Football and The OT. The show was able to beat many series. These include The Masked Singer, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Resident, Bob’s Burgers, WWE Smackdown, The Great North, Alter Ego, Our Kind of People, and The Big Leap.

Will 9-1-1 Get a New Main Character?

With the possibility of Eddie leaving the team, Chimney out looking for Maddie with their daughter, and Maddie not returning, fans have been speculating whether these characters will be replaced.

The newest member, Ravi, seems to be doing pretty well. During a brief doubt of his place in the 118, Buck was even going to have him take his place. But, he is still a rookie firefighter.

Eddie’s place in the show is more than just a firefighter. He is Buck’s best friend. Eddie’s son has also been viewed as a godson and friend to the headstrong firefighter. We’re not sure Ravi can fill those shoes.

9-1-1 on the Rise as The Masked Singer’s Ratings Fall

Since September of this year, The Masked Singer’s ratings have taken a bit of a dip. Among adults 18-49, the hit show scored one of their smallest victories over Survivor. NBC’s team of produced Chicago dramas by Dick Wolf drew the three largest total audiences. Every ABC comedy declined a bit in their second week. Fox’s The Masked Singer scored a 1.01 rating among adults with the above age range, edging the 1.0 for Survivor. In a key ad demographic, this equals a difference of 11,000 viewers. Survivor ended up beating The Masked Singer’s ratings by 1,350,000.
