People are serious when it comes to The Masked Singer. And people are serious about watching their shows at the scheduled times. So, when folks at home turned their TVs to Fox on Nov. 2, 2022, only to find that the show wasn't on, they were both confused and seriously pissed.

So, what happened, exactly? Why is The Masked Singer not on for yet another week this season?

Why isn't 'The Masked Singer' on tonight, Nov. 2?

On Nov. 2, the World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros preempted The Masked Singer. While the singing competition was initially scheduled to air on its normal day and time, Game 3 of the World Series was postponed on Monday, Oct. 31 due to rain.

A similar situation happened on Oct. 19. A game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Diego Padres ended up taking longer than expected — which pushed back the primetime lineup of shows, including The Masked Singer.

It also happened the previous week on Oct. 12, when Game 2 of the series between the Phillies and the Atlanta Braves was delayed for rain. This pushed back the game's start time to 7:30 p.m. ET — about three hours after the game was supposed to have started, according to CBS Sports.

'The Masked Singer' is scheduled to air at a special time on Sunday, Nov. 6.

Just as the network did in these previous situations, Fox programming was switched around on Nov. 2 to accommodate baseball. However, fans of The Masked Singer can (hopefully) look forward to a special episode of the show at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 6.

The network took to Twitter to announce that "a new episode of #TheMaskedSinger airs SUNDAY (pending results of the MLB game) at 8/7c on @FOXTV!"

Of course, this still depends on what happens with the World Series. If Game 7 isn't needed, The Masked Singer will indeed air on Sunday. However, if Game 7 is necessary to determine the winner of the World Series, baseball will (once again) take precedence over our favorite singing competition.

Fans previously took to Twitter to air their grievances about baseball unseating 'The Masked Singer.'

In weeks prior, those who were inexplicably greeted with a baseball game instead of mystery singers in outlandish costumes were losing their minds over missing their show. Many took to Twitter to express their frustration.

For others, a lack of The Masked Singer on Wednesday night was enough to ruin their entire day.

Some baseball fans definitely jumped on the opportunity to poke fun at irate fans of The Masked Singer.

Other fans of The Masked Singer were only slightly annoyed by the switch-up — but absolutely enraged by the lack of explanation from the network.

One disgruntled viewer tweeted: "Would it really be that hard for @FOXTV to put out a message saying when The Masked Singer is going to be on? Quality channels seem capable of letting their viewers know what’s happening with scheduling."

Other viewers think Fox should just stop rescheduling the shows altogether.

"Here is an idea," one Twitter user wrote. "Maybe just maybe put all shows on hiatus until baseball season is over and you won't have so many pissed off fans."
