Fans of Haunted Collector (hello? anyone?), rejoice! SyFy has renewed the unscripted original series for a third season, consisting of 12 episodes.
The show has seen recent ratings growth, adding five percent to its adult 18-49 demo (532,000 per episode), 18 percent among adults 25-53 (663,000) and six percent in total viewers (1.17 million). Where you at, senior citizens?
John Zaffis and his team of investigators star in Haunted Collector. They travel the country, respoding to requests for help from people that are being tormented by inanimate objects they believe to be possessed by paranormal spirits.
I realize some of you like crap like this. My wife does too. But to me, they are the most ridiculous shows on television. In my opinion, these paranormal investigators take advantage of people. They hear a little noise on a tape and say "Oh my god, I heard it say 'Bruce'," or some other nonsense.
I'm open to the idea of their being ghosts, even if I find it a little absurd. But to me, these shows have even less value than your random trashy reality show. When I'd rather keep up with a Kardashian than watch your program, you know you have a really crap show.
Am I wrong? Is there a really good paranormal series that would change my mind out there somewhere?
