Now for some good Skins US news, finally… We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Since we posted our story about the possibility of the show being canceled as a result of bailing advertisers and relatively low ratings for Episode 2, the @SkinsTV Twitter has sent us word that, in fact, MTV has chosen to stand by the show and is not considering giving Skins US the ax. Hail the power of modern social networking!

In our previous story, we had quoted MTV’s press release, where the station had voiced support of the beleaguered show. But we had also heard rumors of a possible cancellation based on a FOX News report, which cited an anonymous source within the MTV camp. This source indicated that, whatever else MTV might be making public, the low ratings of Episode 2 had caused programming execs to panic and consider pulling the plug.

While FOX News has not yet retracted their story, the more up-to-date tip via the @SkinsTV Twitter makes us pretty darn confident that the show is safe for the time being. ‘Safe’… Wait, did we somehow stumble into Skins UK? Cassie?

We were super glad to hear this news, and continue in our support of Skins US. Yeah, you heard us... Bring it on, PTC!
