Monday episode gets most viewers ever for net

Here’s another reason why “Skins” performed poorly in its second episode Monday night.

History’s “Pawn Stars,” produced by Leftfield Pictures, drew 6.7 million for its 10 p.m. episode and 7 million for a new installment at 10:30. The latter was the series best and the No. 1 telecast in total viewers in the history of the A&E-owned cabler.

The 10:30 episode also drew 3.7 million in both the 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

“American Pickers” premiered at 9 o’clock and logged in 6.2 million viewers – 2.6 in the 18-49 demo and 3 million in the 25-54 demo. Skein is produced by Cineflix Prods.
