Just wondering why Riot started giving the new champions only one skin... was it because the time wasnt worth the profit?

Because most people only buy one skin, if that, for a newly released champ.

Because the quality of skins was subpar when they were doing two.
Doing one allows a real SKIN instead of just a recolor.

This is what Riot said when they started doing just one. And honestly, I've been really impressed with most of the release skins since that, so I'm perfectly willing to accept it.
