Survivor creator Mark Burnett joins forces with Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna, creators of the hit series Celebrity Ghost Stories, to take viewers on a spooky thrill ride through some of the most infamously haunted colleges and high schools nationwide. Students, alumni, and faculty share their intimate paranormal encounters while their experiences are brought to life in Jarrett's arresting style of storytelling.

Syfy, would you please stop with all these bogus ghost hunting shows. There are scores of them already here and on other networks, and not once has anyone verified a genuine ghostly presence. Get back to scripted science fiction, fantasy and horror.

I'm intrigued...but skeptical. It sounds like a bunch of people sat around brainstorming ideas for new shows, and this one is just based on a clever name someone threw out there when the coffee was cold and there was two minutes until deadline. Kind of like the movie Face/Off or almost any romantic comedy. TV shows have become like resumes: they are basically all xeroxes of each other, but when you put enough out there, one or two are bound to draw some real interest and pay off. I bet one way to make this show a sure success would be to use any fallen/pseudo star surrounded by 'saying-bomb-in-airport' type of controversy (i.e. Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, or one of the KKK sisters) in the reenactments. Just a suggestion.

Too many good shows being removed from Syfy to be replaced with the same old ideas. Might be cheaper for these reality based shows but my interest in Syfy is winding down every time we lose a good show for these to pop out. Not everyone wants fake reality. I am sorry to see Eureka go for the likes of these....

Awesome. If there's one thing SciFi needs, it's another TV show about ghosts.
The fact that the Sun is maize and the sky is blue is neither in our control, nor is something we fraudulently contrived. It just shows that God has excellent taste in colors.

I think it will be interesting to see what kind of ratings these shows get.

Personally, I have to wonder whether there's an internal conspiracy at Universal aimed at getting SyFy to fail.
All the best,

If this is any indication, these shows won't last long. Insane or Inspired 0.4 rating.

Smackdown got 0.7

The cynical side of me says that these shows are so cheap to produce that even with bad ratings like this, Sy-Fy can still make money.

I really think Sy-Fy is alienating its current viewing audience, and judging from various posts, I am not alone in that assessment.

However, at one time, USA was known as a junk, low-budget network. Now, I see USA as pretty good, actually with a few shows I like, such as White Collar, Burn Notice, and Covert Affairs. I wonder what happened that turned them around? It would be interesting to know. Anyone?

In the meantime, I'll hold out some hope that Sy-Fy will eventually return to its former glory, and, hopefully, painfully bad ratings like this will help.
All the best,
Matthew

I enjoyed the first episode of this show a lot more than I enjoyed any of the GH shows since GH's first investigation of St. Augustine Lighthouse which was way, way back. Get rid of GH and bring on more like this. I look forward to Haunted Highways, too.

It's difficult to believe that there are ghosts out there unless you experience them first hand. I myself have had experiences with a spirit while dorming at a university which started to physically and mentally affect me.

0.4 is quite good for an inexpensive show.

By way of comparison, much more costly shows Eureka and Lost Girl both pulled 0.5 this week.

(And of course, the 0.7 for Smackdown is the very reason it remains on this network. Effectively, wrestling subsidizes more expensive programming.)

Honestly, I am not pleased with this shows format, aside from the very far fetched nature of the story that was broadcast in this most recent premiere show. The last thing they need is to make another show "based" on true accounts that takes someones story and blows it way out of proportion and takes up the entire show. They need to take many more students accounts with the paranormal into consideration and make a show of small clips that are more realistic. Thats what people want, if GH and GHIs success is any indication. Those more popular shows were and still are based on skepticism and realism. This is a great subject to make a show about but they went at it all wrong! Quit with the cheap theatrics and dramatic editing. Give me the truth and more student accounts with more talented actors in the reenactments and quit shoving a bunch of BS in my face. The university that I went to had alot of activity that I witnessed and that many friends of mine witnessed as well, in dorm rooms and otherwise. I would really like to find out if my school will be featured, btw.

"School Spirits"...... and now there's"Haunted Highway?" Are you F'ing kidding me? SyFy: Imagine C.R.A.P

***off topic***

All the shows that people watch(ed); (Stargate series, Eureka, The Closer, The Fades(BBC), Sanctuary, BSG, Caprica etc) are being canceled left and right. Judging from this situation, I would say that broadcast TV is on life support.

The Internet is causing a technological revolution. What was once the leading news medium, the classic "news paper" is now being transformed to websites, many of which are operated "individually". (I.E DigitalJournal, etc) The same thing that is happening to news papers is happening to broadcast TV, only faster with services like Hulu, iTunes, Netflix, and their current unknown successors.

If any more of my "reasons" to have cable service get canceled, then what's the point of having cable TV after that?
