GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL SCORES WITH UNPRECEDENTED DEBUT SEASON!

SCI FI is #1 Cable Network In Wednesday 9 PM Hour

New York, NY � March 5, 2009 � Last night, a chilling investigation at a former military prison rounded out a phenomenal debut season of SCI FI's hit reality series Ghost Hunters International. Airing Wednesday evening at 9 PM ET/PT, the episode delivered a 1.6 Household rating, 1.3 million Adults 18-49, 1.4 million Adults 25-54 and 2.2 million total viewers.

Overall the season averaged a 1.7 Household rating, 1.3 million Adults 18-49, 1.4 million Adults 25-54 and 2.3 million total viewers, making this the best debut season for any SCI FI original reality series in the network's history in all key demos. In addition:

In 1st quarter 2009, SCI FI is the #1 cable entertainment network in Ghost Hunters International's Wednesday 9-10pm timeslot for the Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54, Females 25-54, Males 18-49 and Males 25-54 demographics

Ghost Hunters International continued to attract new viewers throughout its run, with the 1st quarter 2009 episodes of the series outperforming the 1st quarter 2008 run by +6% in Household Ratings and total viewers

Ghost Hunters International continued to build upon the franchise's popularity with younger viewers, averaging over 1.3 million Adults 18-49 (the third-highest season 1 performance for any SCI FI original series, scripted or reality, trailing only the first-season performances of Stargate Atlantis and Battlestar Galactica in 2005).

A spin-off of SCI FI's popular Ghost Hunters series, Ghost Hunters International features a squad of real-life "ghost-busters" - ordinary people who investigate and attempt to debunk claims of otherworldly activity. The team travels to different international cities each week in pursuit of the truth behind bizarre supernatural claims, and is currently gearing up to head overseas later this month to start production on Season 2.

Season 5 of the original Ghost Hunters, featuring lead investigators Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, will premiere next Wednesday, March 11 @ 9 PM with an investigation at the historic Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia.

Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International are produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter, My Fair Wedding). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.
