Sci Fi Bringing Back Ghost Hunters


Sci Fi Channel has ordered a second season of Ghost Hunters, the alternative reality show that trails real-life ghostbusters as they investigate reported hauntings.

The show -- part of Sci Fi’s Wednesday-night lineup of original series -- has averaged a 1.2 household rating and 1.41 million viewers through its first six new episodes. That’s a respective 33% and 37% improvement from the corresponding weeks of 2003.

Production of the new episodes will begin early next year, network officials said.
