The first announced the host and judges for Skin Wars, that reality project which seemed to have gone off the radar completely. Now it's back in sight and Rebecca Romijn is set to host. "There is no more compelling canvas for artists than the human body and Skin Wars is the first ever competition show designed to find the country's most talented, most versatile body painting artist."
Why does this not fill me with glee? Maybe I'm thinking about all those other reality epics that have come and gone (usually in a hurry) on GSN. RuPaul is the celeb judge, along with a couple other judges I've never heard of but who are supposedly big in body painting. Eight hour-long bouts of epidermal decoration are due this summer. By the way, I used the most adorable picture of Rebecca Romijn I could find, because I didn't want to seem overly biased against her GSN project.
In more reassuring news, GSN also says that January, 2014 was their most watched month ever in total viewers and lots of different demos. (I've gotten to the age where demo talk leaves me a little cold and clammy.) The total day numbers I'd seen for the last few weeks did look impressive. So congrats to the network as they begin their twentieth year on a high.
