As the 2016 Presidential Primaries heat up, GSN is saving their Democrats versus Republicans themed episode of Chain Reaction for the week leading up to the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary.
Two Democrats compete against two Republicans tonight on Chain Reaction at 8pm ET. A second new rivalry-less episode of Chain Reaction airs at 8:30pm ET. Mike Catherwood hosts.
Please keep in mind tonight's Democrats versus Republicans episode of Chain Reaction was taped last spring, well before the current Presidential race as we know it kicked off.
Tonight's episodes of Chain Reaction are the last two new episodes for Season 1. Tonight marks the 39th and 40th episodes of Chain Reaction aired. After tonight, no new runs of Chain Reaction remain unless more episodes are ordered by GSN.
Since its December 18th return, all primetime new runs of Chain Reaction have averaged 486,000 total viewers and 118,000 18-49 viewers. For the record, these are numbers for GSN standards for a show that should be easily renewed. However, GSN keeps pushing back renewal on Chain Reaction.
A 2014 episode of Idiotest had a Democrats versus Republicans theme. The Democrats won on Idiotest.
