SYFY'S NEW HIT SERIES "PARANORMAL WITNESS" SPOOKS 1.63 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS, UP 29% VERSUS LAST WEEK'S PREMIERE

PARANORMAL WITNESS ALSO JUMPS 20% AMONG ADULTS 25-54 AND 11% AMONG ADULTS 18-49

NEW YORK - September 15, 2011 - Syfy's new hit series Paranormal Witness significantly expanded its audience in its second week, leaping 29% among total viewers (1.63 million), 20% in Adults 25-54 (869,000) and 11% in Adults 18-49 (792,000), while averaging a 1.20 HH rating -- up 20% -- during its telecast on Wednesday, September 14 from 10-11PM (ET/PT)

At 9PM, Ghost Hunters uncovered 1.55 million total viewers, up 8% versus last week's episode.

Syfy's potent new paranormal programming block propelled the channel to #4 among Adults 25-54 in cable primetime.

Using a mixture of intimate first-hand testimony, actual home video and gritty realistic drama, Paranormal Witness transports viewers into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary, terrifying and sometimes life-threatening paranormal events.

The September 14 episode presented two real life paranormal tales. The first was "Haunted Highway." Dave Stautzenbach's 21-year-old daughter and his 3-year-old grandson mysteriously disappeared on a car journey to southern California. But then disturbing premonitions and the ghostly sighting of a naked woman drew different family members and the police to the exact same spot down a ravine at the side of Highway 50 - and the shocking fate of mother and son was revealed. In the second story, "Kentucky UFO Chase," two cops are drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse when their police helicopter was chased across the night time skies of Kentucky by a glowing orange orb that fired fireballs at them.

Paranormal Witness is produced by Raw TV (Locked Up Abroad and Gold Rush Alaska). Executive producers are Dimitri Doganis and Bart Layton.

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 more than 99 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
