Syfy's 'Ghost Hunters' Scares Up Solid Ratings

8/21/2009 11:25 AM Eastern

Syfy's paranormal-tinged reality series Ghost Hunters scared up 2.5 million viewers during its Aug. 19 summer
premiere episode.

The debut episode of the second half of season five for the
series -- which follows the exploits of daytime plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant
Wilson who search for paranormal occurrences by night -- fell just short of the
2.6 million viewers generated by the March 11 season five premiere, according
to the network.

Compared to the season five premiere, Wednesday's episode -
which faced stiff competition from Bravo's Top
and TNT's Leverage -- also
drew a slight 2% audience gain among adults 18-49 and was flat among adults

Ghost Hunters is
produced by Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television.
