5 Shows After Dark: These Are Their "Very Serious Ghost Hunting" Faces

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 12, 2013 | Comments ()


"NHL Finals: Boston at Chicago: Game 1" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. People have tried to explain to me how hockey season can last until June but I refuse to understand. It is a winter sport. The summer solstice is literally a week and a half away.

"Ghost Hunters" on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season summer premiere. I'd make a joke about how many ghosts they've caught, but we all know the burden of "proof" on these shows is exceptionally low. I'm pretty sure you can fix most "hauntings" by shoring up the insulation in that room, or adding a space heater. "I get a cold feeling when I walk by this window, maybe I'm being haunted by someone who was killed by defenestration!" Or, maybe you need to get better windows. I see how the first is more interesting, though, and involves less research of properly weather-proofed windows and more research of interesting spooky things.

"Royal Pains" on USA at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.

"The Real World" on MTV at 10:00pm ET. 28th season finale. There's already been a casting call for season 29, just in case you were curious.

"Necessary Roughness" on USA at 10:01pm ET. Third season premiere. Apparently John Stamos will be showing up on this from time to time.

Genevieve Burgess has never been haunted, and dares any spirit willing to give it a try.
