If you missed the “Ghost Adventures” Halloween special, man, you missed one seriously spooky night of paranormal programming. Just ask the over 4 million people who tuned in!

From the Press Release:
Travel Channel’s hit paranormal investigative series “Ghost Adventures,” hosted by Zak Bagans and his team featuring Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley and Billy Tolley, scared up electrifying success for the network. Back-to-back special Halloween episodes, at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday, October 28, helped propel the network to top 10 positions among P25-54 and W25-54 for the night. It was Travel Channel’s highest rated Saturday night in two years. Combined with the early October airings of the four-part “Hauntings of Vicksburg” episodes, the “Ghost Adventures” premiere episodes for the month attracted more than 4.1 million viewers.

“October was an exciting adventure for us,” said Bagans. “From taking over the entire town of Vicksburg and immersing ourselves within its Civil War history and ghost stories, to investigating inside my Haunted Museum in Las Vegas, this is a very real passion that we have. We crave the raw adventure that each new location and story brings. My crew and I have grown tremendously as investigators, and the series has evolved with new and innovative investigations that excite our loyal viewers to keep tuning in.”

“Ghost Adventures” also was a top performing show on TravelChannel.com throughout October, generating 75 percent year-over-year growth in its show content page views. Social media fans really loved the ghosts, too. Facebook videos pegged to the “Ghost Adventures” Halloween specials attracted nearly 1 million video views with 9,300 shares; Zak Bagans’ October 26 Facebook Live event produced 287,300 views and 66,700 total reactions. An official “Ghost Adventures” Instagram account was launched in October with 7,500 followers to date.

“We’re blown away with the success ‘Ghost Adventures’ saw this month,” said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming, Travel Channel, Food Network and Cooking Channel. “Zak and his team bring all of the thrills and spooky adventures fans especially look for this time of year, and in a big way. They continue to top themselves year after year, and audiences can’t get enough.”

Annabelle

“Ghost Adventures” follows Bagans and his team of paranormal investigators as they explore haunted destinations around the world. In the “Hauntings of Vicksburg” episodes, the team investigated the haunting impact the Civil War’s Siege of Vicksburg has had on the city. The Halloween specials – “Museum of Madness” and “Annabelle’s Curse” – centered around Bagans’ newly opened Las Vegas Haunted Museum, housing his personal collection of haunted objects including the famously haunted doll Annabelle.

A new season of “Ghost Adventures” begins Saturday, November 4, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Published

on

Some quick news for you regarding the release dates of two hotly anticipated flicks: Godzilla 2 and Doctor Sleep. One has moved back and the other finally has one.

Fans of the King of the Monsters will have to wait a little longer to see their favorite mon-star back on the big screen in all his big budget Hollywood computer effects glory battling rival daikaiju Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Deadline reports Legendary’s Godzilla 2 has officially been moved from March 22, 2019 to May 31, 2019.

The reason for the release date shuffle to the post-Memorial Day weekend stems from Warner Bros’ Six Billion Dollar Man woes. Their tentpole theatrical updating of the cult 1970’s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man set to star Mark Wahlberg has been delayed due to the loss of the film’s original director. With it begin pushed back to June 5, 2020 WB needed another film to fill that summer blockbuster slot. Better call Godzilla!

The new May 31st release date for Godzilla 2 sets up a potential Godzilla vs. Blumhouse battle as the hit-making horror studio currently has an untitled feature slated to open the same week.

Meanwhile, Doctor Sleep, Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, finally has an official release date: January 24, 2020. Doctor Sleep is currently the only film slated for that weekend. That’ll probably change in the year-and-a-half to come.
