There’s only one more week until a champion is crowned on Season 42 of “Survivor,” and fans are ready to see the finalists duke it out.

The CBS stalwart blew the competition away during primetime on Wednesday, with the penultimate episode scoring an impressive 0.92 rating among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic (and a cool 5.7 million eyeballs too).

NBC’s “One Chicago” block — which is also gearing up for some explosive finales next week — gave the CBS competition series a run for its money in terms of total viewers, though. “Chicago Fire” was the night’s victor with 6.8 million people tuning in at 9 p.m. The episode also secured a 0.69 demo rating.

The final three contestants on “The Masked Singer” went head-to-head on Wednesday night, airing to a 0.71 demo rating and 4.2 million total viewers.
