Jason Hawes Versus Grant Wilson: Ghost Nation Versus Ghost Hunters
It would appear two separate opportunities came to Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson when it came to the desperation to revive ghost shows. Sadly, same people - same formats *yawn*.
On one hand, fans of "Ghost Hunters" might want to try Grant's new revival with a new lineup of co-hunters. But, this only has one member of the old team - Grant.
Now, if you miss the cast, you might want to follow "Ghost Nation" with Jason, Steve and Dave from the original series.
If you want to give them both a try, I suggest you do. This says much about a series if it's the format of how they go about filming it and gathering evidence or if you are more into personalities.
The sad reality of TV these days is the re-use and over-use of the same people who couldn't keep up ratings the last time. Just look at Food Network and the three stars who have almost all the shows!
I'm not a fan of either of these ghost shows. The ONLY ghost show I've seen in all my years of watching that satisfied me on every level was Ghosts of Morgan City on Travel Channel .
I said it back in the early 2000s when they launched "Ghost Hunters," investigations are horribly boring. We need more - research out and about, witness interviews, history lessons, and more. And, for goodness sake don't do the same routine and same instruments and techniques again and again. You only truly learn in the field by testing new methods.

Now, it's up to the audience to decide if familiar faces beats new ones.
