Syfy to premier three new paranormal series

The paranormal TV trend isn’t over yet.

Syfy Launches Three New Reality Series –

Syfy has added a trio of new reality programming to its line-up for next year. It was announced today that Ghost Mine, Stranded and Notorious Hauntings would premiere on the network in early 2013. “Each of these series takes a known and successful formula and turns it on its head,” said Mark Stern, President, Original Content for Syfy…

“Successful formula” = cheap in quality and content? Why not try a template that addresses the paranormal in a more INTELLIGENT way. No, that would be boring, they assume.

Ghost Mine – Stick people in a supposedly haunted gold mine. Watch people freak themselves out.

Stranded – Follow teams at haunted location. Watch people freak themselves out.

Notorious Hauntings (tentative title for Spring 2013) – Places where people freaked themselves out.

The first two are set to debut this winter. I know you are excited.

    I remember when the SciFi channel (sorry SyFy – ugh) used to be bastion of quality programming, but just like Discovery, TLC, NatGeo, Animal Planet, etc. they are too jumping on the drivel bandwagon. The only real quality programming is left on The Science Channel (heck they had to run the program about the “Discovery Channel Telescope”, now that’s telling) and they’re even starting to get crap creep with shows like “Fringe” coming back and the ‘science-ish’ “Dark Matters” now in it’s 3rd season.

    Pretty soon it’s just going to be NOVA on PBS. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

    And don’t get me wrong, I personally don’t have anything against “Fringe” I just don’t think it belongs on the Science Channel.
