Face Off season three gets off to strong start on Space

The magic continues for Face Off, as last night’s Season 3 premiere of the hit reality series became the most-watched episode in the series’ history on SPACE with 256,000 viewers.

With more than double the viewers than the Season 2 premiere (120,000), the episode vaulted SPACE to become the #1 non-sports specialty channel from 9-10:30 p.m. with total viewers on Tuesday night.

The episode peaked at 358,000 viewers at 10:16 p.m. as special effects makeup artists battled to out-design each other, while generating an impressive 624,000 unique viewers over the course of the episode.

In last night’s episode, 12 new competitors competed to create original alien characters inspired by the classic cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope. Featuring a guest appearance from actor Sean Astin (Lord Of The Rings), in a shocking twist, one of the competitors walked off set during the judging panel.

In next week’s episode on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m. ET, there’s a lot on the line as the competitors compete to create the perfect pirate.
