How The Ghost Hunters Reboot Compares To The Original, According To Grant Wilson

Ghost Hunters has garnered some of the highest ratings of any Syfy reality programming. In the early shows, TAPS was headquartered in a trailer located behind Jason Hawes' house, and they drove one white van to investigations. Within one season, they had moved the entire operation to a storefront in Warwick, Rhode Island , and acquired several new TAPS vehicles.

In addition to their successful television venture, TAPS operates a website where they share their stories, photographs, and ghost hunting videos with an ever-growing membership list. Because of the popularity of the show, TAPS cast members have signed contracts with at least two talent agencies, Escape Artistry and GP Entertainment, to manage their appearances at lectures, conferences and public events.

In addition to the success of the series, TAPS has ventured into the venue of radio broadcast, hosting a three-hour weekly show called Beyond Reality. New episodes are broadcast every Saturday from 7 pm to 10 pm Eastern Time , though sometimes may skip a week due to the possibility of the hosts being busy with other ventures. The radio show covers topics in a vast array of areas such as cryptozoology , spiritualism , ufology , and ghosts.

The show also once simulcasted on Spooky Southcoast , airing from the Mt. Washington Hotel in New Hampshire.

Goodbye, Ghost Hunters!

On March 3, , Ghost Hunters' th episode aired featuring their investigation of Alcatraz Prison. The two-hour special featured a live studio audience with question and answer segments, hosted by Josh Gates of Destination Truth. On June 2, , Syfy renewed Ghost Hunters for an eighth season, marking it as the longest-running reality series to air on the network.

On June 7, , Hawes announced that Ghost Hunters would be concluding on Syfy with season 11 being the last season to be produced.

On June 26, , it was announced that the series would be revived later that year with Wilson returning with a new team. Paranormal researcher Kenny Biddle wrote an article for Skeptical Inquirer addressing the criticism this event received stating that it could tarnish the reputation of this historical site. According to investigator Benjamin Radford, most ghost hunting groups including TAPS make many methodological mistakes. Anyone can be a ghost investigator, "failing to consider alternative explanations for anomalous Most of the efforts to investigate ghosts so far have been badly flawed and unscientific — and not surprisingly, fruitless.

The show's editing has been questioned, such as activity that is not captured on tape and findings that are unsupported by evidence in the show specifically. Tools are used in ways that are not proven effective, or in ways in which they have been proven ineffective, such as infrared thermometers that are claimed to detect cold spots in the middle of rooms when such tools are able only to measure the surface temperature of objects.

Techniques with thermal imaging cameras, Geiger counters , electronic voice phenomenon , and EMF detectors are used with little or no explanation as to how the techniques have proven to provide evidence of ghosts or other entities. There are concerns that the devices are misused, such as the noting of Benjamin Radford's article for Skeptical Inquirer : "you may own the world's most sophisticated thermometer, but if you are using it as a barometer, your measurements are worthless.

Just as using a calculator doesn't make you a mathematician, using a scientific instrument doesn't make you a scientist. During the seven-hour-long, live Halloween show on October 31, , [17] at least two events took place that critics have scrutinized: One occurs when lead investigator Grant Wilson has his jacket collar pulled down by an unseen force three times; all the while one of his hands remained at his side, which led detractors to claim he was pulling a hidden string. This happens again at one point where Hawes touches Wilson's back and his collar moves down again.

Another occurs when a supposed disembodied voice tells the hunters, "You're not supposed to be here. Video of the incidents has been meticulously scrutinized on various websites. In regard to the scrutiny, Wilson and Hawes defended themselves, stating that everything in the show is real. Ghost Hunters producers Craig Pilligan and Tom Thayer released another paranormal investigation "special" titled UFO Hunters , not to be confused with the show of the same name which aired on the History Channel , which first aired on January 30, , however the show only aired one episode.

The format was similar to a typical Ghost Hunters episode with most of the program dedicated to the investigation and wrapped up with a review of findings and evidence that was gathered. The pilot episode was reformatted and returned on December 13, , as a special called Ny-Spi Investigates on Investigation Discovery , [22] but was not picked up as a continuing series.

On October 23, , TV Guide reported that Syfy would launch a spin-off of the show called Ghost Hunters: College Edition , which would feature "co-eds" in the ghost hunter roles. The series features Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango leading a group of amateur ghost hunters through various investigations.

During its first run of episodes, aside from guest investigators with connections to The Atlantic Paranormal Society , Ghost Hunters utilized connections with other Syfy and NBCUniversal series to feature actors and personalities from those programs, in particular during the live specials, especially those for Halloween :.

The Ghost Hunters lingo, and use of night vision cameras, and other gadgets, could also be felt throughout movies and scripted TV, such as Paranormal Activity , The Conjuring , and Supernatural, among others. However, the end of the series comes as no surprise as Syfy has shifted away from the paranormal reality-TV craze and re-centered its focus on scripted science-fiction programming.

And while still a solid performer for the network, Season 10 averaged , viewers with a peak of 1. As for the announcement itself, Hawes' post suggests it was his and production company Pilgrim Films' choice to wrap the show's run on Syfy, instead of being canceled by the network. Thus far the network has not made a statement.

Love Narratively? So do we.

Regarding the promise for what's ahead, it is possible the show could have a life elsewhere. For example, the Discovery Networks channel Destination America has shifted to a primarily paranormal programming slate. Plus, while it may not fit on Syfy any longer, the brand itself is strong enough and relatively inexpensive to produce that a streaming network looking for unscripted shows could conceivably swoop in and pick it up. Speculation aside, the end of Ghost Hunters at Syfy is an end to an interesting era at the network.
