The Masked Singer jumped the shark

The Masked Singer jumped the shark


To the Editor,

After six successful seasons of television entertainment on the foreign-owned Fox Network, the producers of the hit show “The Masked Singer” have taken the concept of “jumping the shark” to a whole ‘nother level by including (of all people) the soon-to-be indicted enemy of the people and star of the movie Borat 2, Rudy Giuliani in the show’s season seven cast.

The Masked Singer’s season seven premiere episode will not air until March 9th, in which right-wing Republican reprobate Rudy Giuliani is the first costumed singing contestant voted off the show by the studio audience and the panelists including Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke.  Two of the panelists – Jeong and Thicke – reportedly walked off the set in protest of Giuliani’s performance.

The only TV show characters that should be unmasking an old, greedy, dishonest, crazy crook like Rudy Giuliani are Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo!  (Rudy Giuliani is every bit as ridiculous and transparently guilty as your classic Scooby-Doo cartoon criminal, after all.)

And I thought half-term Alaska Governor and failed Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s previous appearance in a pink and blue bear suit in season three singing Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” accompanied by the show’s host Nick Cannon as her hype man was awful enough already, but “The Masked Singer” truly has “jumped the shark” with janky Giuliani’s inexplicable inclusion on the show.  Perhaps Henry Winkler as Fonzie from Happy Days would be proud?  Probably not.  Just saying.
