GSN VIEWERSHIP CONTINUES FIVE-YEAR UPWARD TREND; 2nd QTR 2016 IS HIGHEST-RATED PRIMETIME IN CHANNEL HISTORY
GSN just finished its best 2Q ever in prime among all key demos. The net, which has steadily increased viewership for the past 4 years, broke 2Q delivery records for HH, P2+, P25-54, W25-54, P18-49, W18-49. This also marks the 2nd straight year of 2Q growth for those demos. GSN's success was partially driven by season three of their popular Skin Wars series, and the launch of its first spinoff, Skin Wars: Fresh Paint, which debuted to record ratings on June 15, becoming the #1 competitive reality series debut, and #2 series debut, in GSN history. The new game show Winsanity, hosted by Donald Faison, which debuted June 6, was also a key contributor to the overall success.
