“Springfield State Hospital”

9 PM et / 12 AM et

John E.L. Tenney and Chad Lindberg investigate an abandoned insane asylum in Maryland. Former patients are said to haunt the grounds, and some believe Springfield State Hospital’s unique natural environment may have created a portal to the ghost world that casts a dark show over the whole town.

Now, for the first time ever, the hospital has opened its doors to paranormal investigators. Over the course of two nights, John and Chad discover why it’s been such a closely guarded secret.

 

“Whispers Estate”

10 PM et / 1 AM et

Reports of violent hauntings, goat-like demons, and bizarre shadow creatures drive John and Chad to investigate a possible ghost portal at the Whispers Estate in Mitchell, Indiana. The estate was once home to Dr. John Gibbons, who went insane after his daughter died in a second-floor fire.

Over the course of two nights, John and Chad explore whether the spectral attacks are the work of Dr. Gibbons and his family or of something far more evil.

The closer they get to the truth, the more they find themselves in the house’s crosshairs.

Hangar 1 The UFO Files

History 2

“Underground Bases”

6 PM et

Hangar 1 files suggest that beneath mountain ranges, deserts and perhaps even one public airport, there exist Deep Underground Military Bases that are rumored to be the nerve center for some of the U.S. military’s darkest secrets.

Activities rumored to take place in these underground bunkers involve the study of UFOs, alien life, and black project technologies.

MUFON also exposes new, shocking files that reveal an alliance might exist between our government and an underground alien civilization.

Is the U.S. government housing UFOs in these underground bases and could extraterrestrials already be living here on earth?

We already look to the skies for proof of the existence of UFOs, but perhaps we should also be looking below our feet.

 

“American Hotspots”

7 PM et

In the United States, there are certain areas that seem to attract more UFO sightings than others.

Missouri has been experiencing unusually high UFO activity for the last three years. One famous incident in the Hudson Valley in New York lasted several months.

In addition, every nuclear missile base in the U.S. has experienced UFO visits.

What is the common thread that makes these locations a magnet for potential activity?

Hangar 1 files reveal the answers…and reveal whether you might be living in the middle of one these hotspots right now.

 

“Space Weapons”

8 PM et / 12 AM et

Hangar 1 files reveal that President Ronald Reagan’s personal encounters with UFOs may have been the driving force behind the Strategic Defense Initiative, a controversial program that may have led to a top secret space weapons platform to protect us from attacks from space.

Waves of UFO sightings across the world may, in fact, be evidence of a secret fleet of military UFOs that we’ve created.

Has NASA and the U.S. government been secretly building this program to protect us against alien and asteroid attacks?

A look into MUFON’s files suggests that these space weapons may already be in place.

 

“Alien Technology”

9 PM et / 1 AM et

Could the greatest inventions of the twentieth century and beyond potentially be the products of reverse engineered alien technology?

Inside Hangar 1, MUFON files trace mankind’s technological boom to materials reportedly recovered from UFO crashes in the 1940s.

MUFON investigates allegations of alien engineering, from the birth of the transistor in the 1950s, to military UFOs in the Middle East.

Is our modern world built on a foundation of borrowed–or stolen–technology?

 

“Presidential Encounters”

10 PM et / 2 AM et

From Truman to Obama, our modern day Presidents have all had rich and controversial histories with UFOs and extraterrestrials. In fact, Eisenhower, Nixon, Carter, and Reagan are each rumored to have had personal encounters.

Inside HANGAR 1, MUFON files ask, “What do our presidents really know about the existence of UFOs?”

Are some Presidents kept in the dark because they aren’t trusted with that knowledge and how they might use it?

Or, are they all aware, but the secrets are too dark and deep that full disclosure becomes a risk they just can’t take?

 

“Shadow Government”

11 PM et / 3 AM et

Hangar 1 files suggest that when it comes to UFOs, there is a shadow government that operates beyond public and congressional scrutiny to protect and conceal information about the phenomenon.

Stories of the Men in Black expose the extreme measures taken to protect these secrets from being revealed.

If this shadow government does exist, what information do they have regarding the existence of UFOs?

Hangar 1 files investigate the origins of this shadow government, and the case files that expose their actions.

Animal Planet

 

Premieres Sunday, November 9 at 9 PM (ET/PT)

 
On Sunday, November 9, at 9 PM (ET/PT), Finding Bigfoot returns with a special two-hour episode that takes Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland off to the wilds of Alaska.

Reports of colossal-sized sasquatches draw the team into a vast wilderness in America’s largest state. Eyewitnesses claim to have seen a bigfoot taller than 12 feet, one of the largest reported sasquatch ever.

Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot team leaves no stone unturned this season with eight new episodes.

 
Other destinations in the action-packed season include the following:

United Kingdom: Recent reports of bigfoot sightings in the British Isles draw the team to the UK for the first time, and they can’t resist checking out another of the world’s enigmas, Loch Ness. In between tracking bigfoots, the team heads to the highlands of Scotland to see if it can uncover the truth about ‘Nessie.’

New Jersey: The team heads back to the Garden State to investigate “Big Red Eye,” a nickname for sasquatches in New Jersey. Many are surprised by the large amount of sasquatch activity that occurs in this Mid-Atlantic state, and this time, they have a secret weapon: bigfoot enthusiast and legendary comedian Bobcat Goldthwait (Police Academy Franchise, Scrooged). The team hopes that Bobcat’s iconic yell can help attract “Big Red Eye.”

Tennessee: This southern state has a rich history of sasquatch sightings and government officials who are bigfoot believers. So it’s no surprise that the team from FINDING BIGFOOT heads to this state to attempt to set a record for most people participating in a search for sasquatch. With a huge turnout expected, can the added manpower help the team close in on the elusive creature?

Additionally, the team returns to Idaho, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Ohio.

Record Breaking Ratings for Destination America

Returns in the Spring of 2015

 
Capturing ghosts may be the central mission in Destination America’s hottest new show, GHOST ASYLUM, but in its first season, it also captured the network’s top ratings claims year to-date. The series currently ranks as Destination America’s Top Series Ever among W25-54 and W18-49 among both rating and delivery. Coming off a scary-good first season, Destination America is excited to announce the terrifying return of GHOST ASYLUM in the spring of 2015.

“GHOST ASYLUM has brought viewers to the edge of their seats instilling fear and fright along the way so, we’re bringing the team back to scare up an all-new season in 2015” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “The Tennessee Wraith Chasers are ready to tackle more of America’s most petrifying locations, prepared to risk it all in order to try to trap ghoulish spirits wreaking havoc”.

The hit series follows the most passionate paranormal team in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they examine some of the country’s most frightening asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals.

GHOST ASYLUM premiered September 14 as Destination America’s Best Debut Ever for an original new series among W25-54. The October 5 premiere ranked as the network’s Best Sunday Night Ever among W18-49 delivery and the 2nd Best Sunday Night Ever among W25-54 delivery.

The Tennessee Wraith Chasers’ goal isn’t just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit. Not only did GHOST ASYLUM reel in viewers – including a community of superfans that the ghost-hunting team has dubbed Wraith Nation – on Sunday nights, but the series also broke Destination America’s records on social media.

Viewers can continue getting their paranormal fix throughout Halloween season and beyond by tuning into GHOST STALKERS Sundays at 10/9c on Destination America. The all-new series follows two paranormal investigators, John E.L. Tenney and Chad Lindberg, as they explore some of America’s most haunted places in search of portals to another dimension. John and Chad have both had near-death experiences that left them with an undying passion for exploring one of life’s biggest unanswered questions: what happens after you die?

Syfy Renews “Defiance” and “Dominion”

Both Original Dramas Slated To Return in 2015

 
Syfy today announced a third season for its original series Defiance, giving a 13-episode order to the action packed drama, and a second season for the epic supernatural thriller Dominion, which will also consist of 13 episodes. Both series are produced by Universal Cable Productions and are slated to return with all-new episodes in 2015.

 
Set in the near future, Defiance features an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully.

 
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in a transformed post-apocalyptic future, 25 years after an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity.

Rising out of the ashes, are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control over the people and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war escalates between the human race and the angels that are hell-bent on destroying humanity.

 
Dominion and Defiance are the top two cable programs in the Thursday 8-10pm time period among P25-54s. With most current Live+7 data, both series are averaging 2.7 million total viewers, 1.2 million viewers 18-49 and 1.4 million viewers 25-54.

Drawing an especially engaged social audience, Dominion was the most social drama on Thursdays across all of TV in tweets (15.4K) and tweets per unique (8.0).
