I was sent a message while in myspace by myspace saying that ghost hunters was being canceled and was sent to site to either agree or disagree. Has anyone else seen this message? If this is true is there anyway that we can let Sci FI know that we do not want this show canceled. I watch it every Wednesday and do not want it canceled.

It's been announced that Skiffy ordered 26 new episodes.

If it were to be cancelled, they wouldn't order any.

Believe what you will--you can bet that if it were, we'd have a dozen threads talking about it.

Sci fi will lose a lot of viewers if they do.

I seriously doubt the GH or GHI are going to be taken off the air, though I would do some staff changes to make the show more appealing.

Yeah, staff changes that could lead to more credibility would be nice. Changes should begin at the top.

I think GH has already done their job of proving that ghosts don't exist and should probably move on to full time plumbing or whatnot.
Just my opinion.
The problem with those who call themselves skeptics is not that they are skeptical. We must all be skeptical. The problem is that they are skeptical in only one direction.

Jay and Grant have done an excellent job of assembling a team that really works together and actually UNDERSTANDS their jobs.

1. They collect as much raw data as they can - through EVP's EMF's,Video and personal experiences.
2. They filter all the information collected by all the team members (a task that takes hours and hours of dedicated attention to monotonous NON-information)
3. While all this is going on they have a researcher or two digging into the background of the location.
4. Then they boil it down to fact and fiction.
4. FINALLY - they present the remaining information to the client in a format they can both understand and interact with ("Tell us what you hear...", "Did you see anything unusual there...", etc...)

In short they operate the way a well run business should run. (The INTEL folks in the AF should watch and learn something here.) ( Sorry - pet peeve from a lot of BAD experiences)

As for people that say there is too much "play" in the show. I strongly disagree. Jay and Grant obviously understand that when people work in a high stress environment such as they do - dark unfamiliar places, close quarters, going into places some people adamantly refuse to enter, etc... - tension and stress can destroy an otherwise sound investigation. A little light by-play by the team members can do a LOT to help people refocus - especially when they realize they've been had. The team deserves kudos too since they all understand that there is no true animousity and they don't "retaliate" - very much.

Well enough soap-boxing.

Back to the point of this thread - ScfiFi is NOT stupid enough to get rid of a working program. At worse they may move them to another time slot but I just don't see them cancelling the show. As the guys down in maintenance keep telling me - "If it ain't broke don't "mess" with it."

Yep. Have you seen a full body apparition that matches a photo from a death certificate database on the show? Everything they catch can be explained naturally, some easier than others. They're never going to be able to prove that ghosts exist without finding something so concrete that no other explanation could possibly arise.

I think Jay and Grant do an excellent job and this show should not be cancelled. I got the same message on myspace and was alarmed by it... I hope that they do not cancel this show.

I think that Jay and Grant do the best job in proving the existence of "paranormal activity" and disproving or debunking the claims that are not paranormal. Even if they do have a personal experience during a case - if there is no evidence that was captured - they have to dismiss it. I think that the biggest evidence that this show is real - is the halloween episode. I sat up for hours on end watching. Sometimes they caught something - sometimes they didn't. I like the fact they are just normal guys with families and honest people with good common sense!!!!!
I love this show. It helps people , brings people together and sheds light on the paranormal .... a field that many people were unaware of before this show
What do you all think?

Exactly it gives us proof that their is life after death, and how to accept death. I doubt the show would be cancelled while at it's best, and if they did cancel Ghost Hunters...People WILL die. *Looks at SciFi network.*
