This is the second lowest rated episode for Skin Wars in total viewers, although good news is this episode hit a 0.2 in the 18-49 demo. The first four episodes scored a 0.2 in the 18-49 demo but the next two scored a 0.1.

  1. So I'm not surprised at all the chatter I'm hearing about the new Chain Reaction Hour. It could beat The Chase ratings if they stay true to the originals.
