This year UK Living has replaced Most Haunted Live with a new show called Paranormal Investigations Live. Yvette Fielding quit Most Haunted earlier this year.
The new show, being provided by STV Productions, will be hosted by presenter Naga Munchetty (from BBC 2’s Working Lunch) and features two teams apparently “competing against” one another. One team is a collection of psychics and uses techniques like Ouija for their investigations and will be known as Impact. The other team is scientifically based, uses technology to try and detect and record paranormal phenomena and is known as The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society (aka GPS).
The show will air from 21:00 to 24:00 on the 30th and 31st of October. The location is being kept secret and will be announced just before the program airs.
Paranormal Investigation Live seems to be making heavy use of Facebook and Twitter. You can follow the main account here. At the time of posting it looks like Team Impact has made more effort to sign up to Twitter but aren’t really using it. In contrast, I can’t find all of the Ghostfinder Paranormal Society but their main account has a far better Twitter account as a far better heritage.
As of yet, there is no indication to what the hashtag will be. Could it be #pil?

What do you think of Living’s plans to replace Most Haunted? Did they have to do it due to Yvette Fielding leaving? Had Most Haunted lost all credibility (remember: it was classified as entertainment so legally they could fake anything they wanted).
Or are you reading this after the show as aired? What did you think? Would you watch a Paranormal Investigations Live series?
