Syfy 'Ghost Hunters' premiere sneak peek

The TAPS team is back on Syfy for Season 7 of Ghost Hunters, and the top-rated paranormal show is shaking things up with some new equipment and a couple other surprises in what is billed as the biggest, scariest season. In tonight's premiere at 9 p.m. EST, Jason and Grant visit Alexandria, La., to check out local haunts The Hotel Bentley, Finnegan’s Wake Tavern and Diamond Grill Restaurant. 

According to Syfy:
While at the Diamond Grill, Jason and Grant search through the kitchen for some paranormal activity.  We assume it’s probably not the best area to search with knives and sharp objects hanging around, but they decide to scope it out anyways.  Jason quickly sees a big black mass down the hallway as it jumps into another room after he felt like it was staring back at him before the hairs on his own neck stand up.  The thrill of the hunt leaves Jason feeling excited about the sighting, but he’s still shaken up by his encounter.
Here's a sneak peek at the premiere. Also, in case you hadn't seen it yet, check out the slick new Ghost Hunters promo touting Season 7. Embracing the scare factor of the show is an exciting new marketing move on the part of the Syfy network (along with a new logo, shown above).  Do you think it will work?
