SYFY CELEBRATES THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH FIRST ANNUAL COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS WEEK (DECEMBER 6-12), SPONSORED BY KAY JEWELERS

SPECIAL EUREKA, WAREHOUSE 13, GHOST HUNTERS, HOLLYWOOD TREASURE, FACT OR FAKED: PARANORMAL FILES AND WWE FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN(R) HOLIDAY EPISODES PLUS SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE ICE QUAKE

NEW YORK - November 19, 2010 - Syfy will celebrate the season of giving with a month-long programming festival featuring its first annual Countdown to Christmas week (December 6-12). The week will spotlight stand-alone original holiday episodes from Warehouse 13 and Eureka (both December 7), Ghost Hunters, Hollywood Treasure (both December 8), Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files (December 9) and WWE Friday Night SmackDown(R) (December 10), as well as the disaster-themed Saturday Original Christmas Movie Ice Quake (December 11).

Kay Jewelers -- a long-time advertising partner of major Fourth Quarter Syfy programming events -- will once again celebrate the holidays with Syfy, serving as the exclusive on-air and online sponsor of Countdown to Christmas. The sponsorship will include vignettes showcasing stars from Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Being Human discussing their favorite holiday memories.

Syfy will also present five end-of-the-year December marathons culminating in its 16th annual Twilight Zone New Year's festival.

Original series finales in December include Ghost Hunters and Hollywood Treasure (both December 8), Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files (December 9) and the mid-season conclusion of Sanctuary (December 17).

Starring Brendan Fehr (Bones) and Victor Garber (Glee), Ice Quake premieres Saturday, December 11, at 9PM (ET/PT). In the movie, the melting Alaskan permafrost creates underground rivers of volatile liquid methane, causing a succession of violent and destructive earthquakes. One family, separated by the disastrous events, must find each other during Christmas and together stop the deadly rivers before a catastrophic explosion threatens the entire planet. The movie is a production of Cinetel Films.

Other Syfy movie treats feature premieres of The Golden Compass (December 5); Bourne Ultimatum (December 8); The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (December 12), and The Cave (December 18), as well as favorites like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (both on December 4), and National Treasure (December 6).

During the week of December 22-26, Syfy will stuff viewers' stockings with the following marathons:

Wednesday, December 22, 8AM-12AM: Ghost Hunters/Ghost Hunters International

Thursday, December 23, 9AM-3AM: Land Of the Dinosaurs movies
