***RATINGS ALERT!***

GHOST HUNTERS CONTINUES WINNING RATINGS STREAK!

SCI FI Channel is #1 Cable Network

'Ghost Hunters' is #1 Cable Program

New York, NY � April 23, 2009 � A special crossover episode of SCI FI's Ghost Hunters featuring an investigation by the team from Ghost Hunters International was a hit last night, haunting the competition and adding to the series' winning ratings this season. Airing Wednesday from 9-10pm, the episode delivered a 2.0 Household rating, 3.0 million total viewers (season high), 1.7 million Adults 18-49 and 1.8 million Adults 25-54 (season high).

It was the #1 cable entertainment program for the day in both Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, beating a new episode of South Park on Comedy Central in both key demos. In addition:

SCI FI was the #1 cable network airing entertainment programming in primetime for both Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54.

Ghost Hunters was the #1 cable program on Wednesday for Adults 25-54 viewers for the 6th time in 7 weeks since it returned with new episodes on March 11th.

Last night's episode was the #2-highest Adults 25-54 delivery in Ghost Hunters history for this demographic, trailing only the series high set in October 2008.

Last night's 10pm repeat telecast of the series delivered 1.2 million Adults 18-49 and 1.2 million Adults 25-54, out-delivering new episodes of most cable series that aired in primetime that same evening, including Mythbusters and Pitchmen on Discovery, Dog the Bounty Hunter (Adults 25-54 only) and The Exterminators on A&E, and Monsterquest and UFO Hunters on History.

Next week, the team heads to the massive, abandoned Essex County Sanatorium in New Jersey for the chilling mid-season finale!

In October 2004, SCI FI introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson � plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! Its spin-off series, Ghost Hunters International, recently wrapped a successful first season that cemented the Ghost Hunters brand as the top paranormal franchise in cable. The franchise just expanded further with the greenlight of a brand-new pilot, Ghost Hunters: New Generation. Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters: New Generation 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.

SCI FI Channel is a television network that 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).
