Wikipedia describes ghosts as the disembodied spirit or soul of a deceased person, although in popular usage the term refers only to the apparition of such a person. Often described as immaterial and partly transparent, ghosts are reported to haunt particular locations or people that they were associated with in life or at time of death.

Here are some other ghostly shows to keep you up at night: Ghost Hunters on the SciFi Channel, Most Haunted on the Travel Channel, Medium on NBC and A Haunting on Discovery.
