The marathon of chills began on Thursday, October 19 and averaged a 1.0 HH rating, 667,000 P18-49 and 690,000 P25-54 in primetime throughout its run. This year's marathon grew +34% in the coveted P18-34 demo, compared to 2005's 13 Days of Halloween.

Ghost Hunters Live revisited the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado for a real-time Halloween-night investigation. As the legend goes, Stephen King took up residence at the Stanley while writing his best-selling novel The Shining and the spooky goings on at the hotel reportedly served as the inspiration for his best-selling tome. Also joining the investigation was special guest from ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling´┐Ż) - ghost hunting novice CM Punk!

The startling evidence gathered from Ghost Hunters Live will be presented in a brand-new episode airing on Wednesday, November 8 @ 9pm, "Best of the Stanley Hotel."
