Skein, which racked up 1.7 million total viewers in its premiere, has received some extra love from its sister nets — NBC scared up some cross-promotion Halloween eve, running both “Ghost Hunters” and “Scare Tactics” in primetime. USA, meanwhile, aired an episode of the series Tuesday at 11:30 p.m.

On Sci Fi, “Ghost Hunters” has averaged 1.4 million total viewers — up 37% in the time period from the previous year — since its premiere Oct. 6. Series has also boosted Sci Fi’s 18-34 delivery in the timeslot by 106%.

“Ghost Hunters” tracks the adventures of real-life plumbers-turned-ghost hunters Jason and Grant as they investigate paranormal activity throughout the country. Craig Piligian and Thomas Thayer exec produce.
