SCI FI CHANNEL BRINGS VIEWERS THE 'SPIRIT' OF HALLOWEEN SEASON WITH WALL-TO-WALL PROGRAMMING!

Channel Presents '31 Days of Halloween' Marathon

'Ghost Hunters Live' Returns With 3rd Annual Halloween Investigation

Beverly Hills, CA-July 20, 2008-This fall, SCI FI Channel is the ultimate destination for all things Halloween, featuring all-new episodes of Ghost Hunters, the 3rd annual Ghost Hunters Live Halloween event and the all-new 31 Days of Halloween programming extravaganza! Beginning October 1, this marathon will serve up the spookiest fare that Halloween has to offer, concluding with Ghost Hunters Live on Halloween night. The immensely popular event will take place this year at the historic Fort Delaware in Delaware City, DE.

In June 2008, the Ghost Hunters, led by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, paid their first visit to the notoriously haunted Fort Delaware. Built in the mid-1800's and primarily used as an artillery defense for the Union during the Civil War, it eventually became a Civil War POW camp, housing over 33,000 Confederate soldiers. The conditions at Fort Delaware were grim, and over the years, it eventually became home to thousands of deaths. After capturing a variety of paranormal encounters during this first investigation, the team eagerly returns to Delaware this Halloween to explore this historic haunt!

Once again, SCIFI.COM will also serve as the online destination on Halloween night, offering a multilayered digital experience for fans including an exclusive, multi-camera online video feed and thermal imaging camera views, exclusive access to photos from the live event, live Q&A with the TAPS team members and the return of the "Panic Button" for web watchers to alert the team of something they are seeing live on TV.

Ghost Hunters Live will wrap up SCI FI's 31 Days of Halloween marathon. Featuring over 250 hours of horror and sci-fi movies, series, miniseries and originals, the marathon of chills begins October 1 at 8am and concludes on Halloween night with Ghost Hunters Live. Highlights include horror favorites The Grudge, Saw, Freddy vs. Jason and Night of the Living Dead. Viewers can tune into daytime marathons of their favorite classic sci-fi series X Files and Haunted, and more, and in primetime can catch new episodes of fright favorites Ghost Hunters and Scare Tactics.

Enjoying record-high ratings throughout its run, Ghost Hunters remains one of cable's hottest shows! The series is currently celebrating its best season ever, delivering a 1.9 Household rating, 2.7 million total viewers, 1.7 million Adults 18-49 and 1.7 million Adults 25-54. Its live Halloween event is a tremendous hit with viewers, with last year's event scoring a 2.1 Household rating and making SCI FI the #1 cable entertainment channel for the night in the key demographics. Ghost Hunters is produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (American Chopper, Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.
