GHOST HUNTERS CONTINUES RATINGS SUCCESS

#1 Cable Program in 9pm Hour

#2 Most-Watched Episode Ever Among Adults 25-54

New York, NY � September 3, 2009 � Last night, Syfy's Ghost Hunters built on its successful fifth season with a 2.0 Household rating, 1.7 million Adults 18-49, 1.9 million Adults 25-54 and 2.8 million total viewers. The episode, airing from 9-10pm, out-delivered a new episode of TNT's Leverage in the timeslot head-to-head by +17% in Adults 18-49 and +7% in Adults 25-54. Ghost Hunters was also the #1 program in the 9pm hour for both key demos.

Underscoring the series' popularity among women, this was the series' #2 best-ever delivery among Females 25-54 (1.1 million). This also marks the #2 best-ever performance for any Syfy series telecast among Females 25-54 (behind only the 10/22/08 episode of Ghost Hunters).

In addition, Ghost Hunters was the #2 cable program for the entire day among Adults 25-54 and and #3 among Adults 18-49. This was also the series' second-highest Adults 25-54 delivery ever. Compared to last week's new episode, this is an increase of +3% in Adults 18-49 +7% in Adults 25-54, a second consecutive week of growth for the series since it returned with new episodes on 8/19.

Next week, special guest star Josh Gates joins the team for an investigation at the abandoned Essex County jail in New Jersey, followed by the 3rd season premiere of his adventure travel series, Destination Truth, at 10pm.

In October 2004, Syfy introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson � plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! The success of its spin-off series, Ghost Hunters International, 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 Academy. Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy 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.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as Sci Fi Channel, and currently in 95 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
