SCI FI'S 'GHOST HUNTERS' SCORE BIG RATINGS LEADING INTO 'GHOST HUNTERS LIVE!'

6-Hour Live Halloween-Night Investigation to Feature Unprecedented Viewer Interactivity

NEW YORK, NY�October 27, 2006�SCI FI Channel's hit Original Series 'Ghost Hunters' has been scaring up unprecedented ratings since its October 11 season three premiere. Compared to 'Ghost Hunters' season two episodes, which premiered last spring, season three is up +20% in HH ratings, +26% in P18-49s and +24% in P25-54s.

The 9pm ET/PT premiere of Wednesday night's (10/25) 'Ghost Hunters,' featuring an investigation from the former West Virginia Penitentiary, was the best-ever performance for a mid-season episode.* This spooky spirit search averaged 1.2 million P18-49, 1.1 million P25-54 and 1.8 million viewers overall from 9-10 pm. This was up +21% in P18-49 and +10% in P25-54 versus the season three premiere on October 11.

Viewers will have the opportunity to pull an all-nighter with the 'Ghost Hunters' team on Halloween night as they embark on a never-before-attempted, live 6-hour 'Ghost Hunters' investigation! 'Ghost Hunters Live'** (11pm-5am), an unprecedented television event, will revisit the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado on Halloween-night! Highlights from the 'Ghost Hunters Live' investigation will be presented in a brand-new episode airing on November 8, "Best of the Stanley Hotel."

As the legend goes, Stephen King took up residence at the Stanley while writing his best-selling novel The Shining and the spooky goings on at the hotel reportedly served as the inspiration for his best-selling tome. Viewers will be sent on the ultimate Halloween adventure, joining the 'Ghost Hunters' in real-time as they investigate the infamously haunted hotel. Also joining the investigation is a special guest from 'ECW' (Extreme Championship Wrestling�) - ghost hunting novice CM Punk!

The 'Ghost Hunters' originally investigated the Stanley in February 2006 and were met with a flurry of unexplainable occurrences including a hotel room that was a veritable hotbed of paranormal activity. Continually intrigued by the locale, our 'Ghost Hunters' will return to the Stanley for the show's first-ever live investigation, spending more time exploring some of the hotel's most notorious hot spots and enlisting viewers to help expand their search for spirits.

In addition to the live broadcast, viewers can interact with the 'Ghost Hunters' via polling, SMS messaging and SCIFI.COM, logging suggestions for rooms to investigate and screening an online video feed. One unprecedented interactive addition to the live telecast is the SCI FI.COM "panic button" which will enable viewers to email the control room and alert the 'Ghost Hunters' to any paranormal occurrences observed on the online feed.

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.
