This was the best premiere ever for Ghost Hunters in video streams.

Ghost Hunters ranked as the #1 show site in page views and video streams for the day.

The premiere of Ghost Hunters and the live event on March 3rd boosted Syfy.com traffic to 1.5 million page views, 244K uniques, 281K visits and 224K video streams.

Ghost Hunters celebrated the sixth season launch with their 100th episode before a live audience from the legendary Studio 8H in Rockefeller Center, where they presented their first-ever investigation at Alcatraz as well as a look back at the most shocking and spine-chilling moments the hit series has caught on tape over the past five seasons.

Josh Gates (Destination Truth) hosted the event, which featured investigators from all three Ghost Hunters teams gathered together for the very first time: Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni, Kris Williams (Ghost Hunters), Barry FitzGerald, Robb Demarest, Dustin Pari (Ghost Hunters International), Susan Slaughter and Karl Pfeiffer (Ghost Hunters Academy).

New episodes of Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy will premiere this summer. On Ghost Hunters Academy, expert instructors Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango will once again train a group of recruits to become the newest team member, but this time, one hopeful will be voted off each week by one of the ultimate judges of paranormal investigating: Ghost Hunters' Jason Hawes.

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 and Ghost Hunters Academy, cemented the Ghost Hunters brand as the top paranormal franchise in cable. 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.
