SCI FI CHANNEL SCORES WITH SEASON FINALE OF 'GHOST HUNTERS'

Series to Return for 13 New Episodes Starting in October

NEW YORK -- June 1, 2006 -- SCI FI was the #1 cable entertainment network last night for P18-49 (1.2 million) and P25-54 (1.2 million) during the 90-minute second season finale of the Channel's hit reality series 'Ghost Hunters.' Bringing in 1.9 million viewers (1.5HH rating), 'Ghost Hunters' is SCI FI's highest rated program in key demos (P18-49, P25-54) since the season finale of 'Battlestar Galactica' (March 10, 2006).

SCI FI Channel will be bringing 'Ghost Hunters' back for 13 new episodes slated to premiere in October 2006, it was announced today by Mark Stern, SCI FI Channel's EVP, Original Programming. Six new episodes will premiere in October with the remaining seven airing in early 2007. Season three of 'Ghost Hunters' will hit the road, investigating claims of the paranormal here in the United States and abroad.

Last night's finale episode featured an investigation at Colorado's legendary Stanley Hotel. Stephen King took up residence at the Stanley while writing his novel 'The Shining' and the spooky goings on at the hotel served as the inspiration for the best-selling tome.

Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson are plumbers by day, 'Ghost Hunters' by night! These self-proclaimed skeptics have managed to expose some of the most frighteningly compelling evidence of paranormal phenomenon ever seen on television. Being scared has never been so much fun! Produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television ('American Chopper,' 'Dirty Jobs'), 'Ghost Hunters' leaves no stone unturned in its search for the truth - or the truly bizarre.

SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on. SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com ) and magazine. Launched in 1992, and currently in 85 million homes, SCI FI Channel is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies.
