Game Show Network's newest original (and so far, highest rated original of 2014) will air its third new episode tonight at 9pm ET on GSN. A prior episode of Skin Wars will rerun at 8pm ET tonight before the new episode. Idiotest will rerun after Skin Wars and 10pm and 10:30pm ET.

Skin Wars has turned into Game Show Network's highest rated original of 2014, averaging 643,000 total viewers in its first two episodes. Additionally, Skin Wars has averaged a spectacular 246,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic. The first two episodes of Skin Wars have averaged higher than Mind of a Man, Minute to Win It, American Bible Challenge, It Takes a Church and The Chase in 2014.

What is your guess for tonight? Mine:

8pm Skin Wars (rerun): 306,000 total; 116,000 18-49
9pm Skin Wars (new): 567,000 total; 238,000 18-49
