The Masked Singer

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Fox

The feisty 5 have made it to the Quarter Finals and they're still standing. Literally — catch a preview of Russian Dolls singing Elton John's "I'm Still Standing" below. The competition teases a "shocking and unexpected reveal" — which EW can vouch for — that leads to the semis. Plus, guest panelist Rob Riggle gives The Masked Singer his seal of approval. "It's the weirdest show I've ever seen, and it did not disappoint," he says in the clip. —Rachel Yang

The Hills: New Beginnings


Season Premiere
She's ba-a-a-a-ack! After Kristin Cavallari missed out on the first season of The Hills revival, the OG reality mean queen has arrived for season 2, and she's bringing the drama with her. Did you expect anything less? And after the whirlwind few years the cast has had since season 1, with Brody and Kaitlynn's breakup (and her high-profile fling after), the pandemic, and so much more, the time has never been more right to reunite with this crew. So cue up Natasha Bedingfield because the rest is still unwritten. —Sydney Bucksbaum
