Apparently, there is a sizable and growing television audience who see the 1984 comedy "Ghostbusters" as a kind of documentary. Or maybe, a career inspiration. And this fanciful realm of ghost detectives has broken itself into professionals and amateurs. A new series "Paranormal Challenge" (9 p.m., Travel) offers the untrained and apparently "unaccredited" a chance at an apprenticeship of sorts.
Hosted by Zak Bagans of "Ghost Adventures" fame, "Challenge" invites amateur spook sleuths to sites considered haunted, arms them with appropriate gadgetry and sets them loose amid the ectoplasm. The team that returns with the most "evidence" is declared the winner. And in a fitting twist, the night's champion will receive neither prize nor title. The winner's sole compensation will be a newfound "respect" in the community of paranormal believers. And we all know that's worth twice its weight in pixie dust!
