Episode two of the second season of GSN’s hit series SKIN WARS, hosted by actress Rebecca Romijn, delivered the show’s highest ratings ever last night. Compared to last week’s hotly-anticipated premiere, the series saw a 112% increase in W18-49, 82% growth in W25-54, and +44% in Total Viewers. Compared to all of last season, the show was up 68% in W25-54, 19% in W18-49 and 29% in Total Viewers. It was also the most-watched telecast for an original series this year among P18-49, W18-49, P25-54, W25-54 and Total Viewers.
Also benefitting from the large SKIN WARS tune-in was GSN’s IDIOTEST, hosted by Ben Gleib. The 10pm episode of IDIOTEST was up 46% in W25-54, 66% in W18-49 and 32% in Total Viewers, compared to its season two average. It was also the show’s highest-rated episode of the season.
Last night’s primetime success for GSN only adds more fuel to its fire, as the network is on-track to have its best June ever in their 20-year history. Before adding in last night’s numbers, GSN’s 8-11pm primetime was already up 36% in W25-54, 70% in W18-49 and 28% in Total Viewers, compared to June 2014. GSN has also had its highest month ever in Total Viewers in four of the past five months.
