"GHOST ASYLUM" CAPTURES VIEWERS WITH RECORD-BREAKING RATINGS FOR DESTINATION AMERICA

-Destination America Announces the Return of Ghost Asylum for a Brand-New Season in 2015-

(Silver Spring, MD) - Capturing ghosts may be the central mission in Destination America's hottest new show, GHOST ASYLUM, but in its first season, it also captured the network's top ratings claims year to-date. The series currently ranks as Destination America's Top Series Ever among W25-54 and W18-49 among both rating and delivery. Coming off a scary-good first season, Destination America is excited to announce the terrifying return of GHOST ASYLUM in the spring of 2015.

"GHOST ASYLUM has brought viewers to the edge of their seats instilling fear and fright along the way so, we're bringing the team back to scare up an all-new season in 2015" said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "The Tennessee Wraith Chasers are ready to tackle more of America's most petrifying locations, prepared to risk it all in order to try to trap ghoulish spirits wreaking havoc".

The hit series follows the most passionate paranormal team in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they examine some of the country's most frightening asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals.

GHOST ASYLUM premiered September 14 as Destination America's Best Debut Ever for an original new series among W25-54. The October 5 premiere ranked as the network's Best Sunday Night Ever among W18-49 delivery and the 2nd Best Sunday Night Ever among W25-54 delivery.

The Tennessee Wraith Chasers' goal isn't just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit. Not only did GHOST ASYLUM reel in viewers - including a community of superfans that the ghost-hunting team has dubbed Wraith Nation - on Sunday nights, but the series also broke Destination America's records on social media. GHOST ASYLUM received the highest number of embedded video streams ever for a network series on Destination America's Facebook page. In addition, a video clip featuring the Ghost Asylum After Show reached five times more viewers than the average video post on Destination America's Facebook page.

Viewers can continue getting their paranormal fix throughout Halloween season and beyond by tuning into GHOST STALKERS Sundays at 10/9c on Destination America. The all-new series follows two paranormal investigators, John E.L. Tenney and Chad Lindberg, as they explore some of America's most haunted places in search of portals to another dimension. John and Chad have both had near-death experiences that left them with an undying passion for exploring one of life's biggest unanswered questions: what happens after you die?
