Ghost Hunters, which follows TAPS members and real-life plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson as they investigates hauntings and bizarre occurrences stateside, is currently airing new fourth-season episodes in the Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT time period.
Both shows are produced by Sci Fi Channel in association with Pilgrim Films and Television. Craig Piligian, Thomas Thayer, Rob Katz and Alan David will serve as executive producers.
