'Skin Wars' new tonight

One of Game Show Network's newest originals, Skin Wars, hosted by Rebecca Romijn will have its second new episode tonight (Wednesday) at 9pm ET.

Before Skin Wars, an rerun of The Chase will air at 8pm ET. Last night's Idiotest premiere, the two half-hour episodes will rerun at 10pm ET and 10:30pm ET. This is the first Wednesday night since March 2012 with no Steve Harvey's Family Feud in Wednesday's primetime lineup.

Judges RuPaul, Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina appear on Skin Wars for all eight episodes.

Alan Anderson, 38, was the first contestant eliminated on Skin Wars for Season 1. Nine contestants remain on tonight's episode. It is presumed that the finale will consist of three contestants. The Skin Wars finale is expected to air in late September.

Skin Wars, somewhat surprisingly has turned into a hit for GSN, receiving 697,000 total viewers and an extremely impressive 252,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic. Both the total viewer and 18-49 figures crush anything American Bible Challenge, It Takes a Church, Minute to Win It or Mind of a Man has done in 2014. This Skin Wars number has also topped all episodes from the third season of The Chase, which has averaged 539,000 total viewers over five episodes. Unless numbers totally dip in the coming weeks, looking at the 18-49 number alone, Skin Wars could be a lock for a second season.
