  • History and Sci Fi channels to debut dueling 'UFO Hunters' on Feb 6

    The History Channel and Sci Fi Channel are apparently taking the reality show concept wars to a new level.

    In what appears to be an unprecedented scenario, both networks are currently planning to premiere different reality programs with the same name and the same subject matter on the same night in the same time period.

    The History Channel's UFO Hunters will follow a team from UFO Magazine as they investigate UFO cases in North America and Europe while Sci Fi Channel's UFO Hunters will follow a team from the New York Strange Phenomena Investigators organization investigating their own set of UFO cases. Both shows are currently scheduled to premiere Wednesday, February 6 at 10PM ET/PT.

    I don't get the History channel, but I'll be watching Ghost Hunters on SciFi so I'll probably watch the UFO Hunters afterward and see what it's like.

    If he's not happy, he'll tell 20 others.

      It will be interesting, because I have a feeling that the audiences for both channels have some overlap. I love Sci Fi, and love History as well. Don't currently have cable, but am getting it next month. I look forward to both, though I find the Sci Fi channels self produced shows to be of lesser quality than those on the History Channel at times.

      Quantum frying pans fit anywhere. - Me.

      I read Tarot cards and Oracle cards and Runes and Pendulums and little colored gems that represent the elements. And I believe that they tell the truth. I believe that faeries are real, and that they talk to me. I also know that I'm at least 50% insane. And I'm okay with that. I won't judge you. But you can judge me all you want. I'll just tell you to stuff it where the sun don't shine. And I'll smile while I'm saying it, and offer you homemade fudge and soft pretzels.

        I'm not really into UFO's but I'll probably end up watching anyways because I watch the Scifi channel and the History channel.
