"Paranormal Cops" Premieres Tonight

Tonight at 9:30, "Paranormal Cops" is going to be premiering on A&E. According to the site, the show "follows a group of larger-than-life cops who walk one beat during the day as real-life Chicago-area police officers and another at night when they apply their forensic and investigative expertise to paranormal casework...As they investigate, the team will also uncover the dark underworld of Chicago's sordid history, which will both inform and enrich their cases as they seek to rid people of the fears that plague them."

If you miss it at 9:30, you'll get a chance to see it at other times. See the schedule for details.

I'm sorry. We meet these guys at the Chicago Paranormal Conference and we thought they were joking they had a show. This is just another bad paranormal tv show. sorry

A good show to check out would be Ghost Adventures they are the real deal. and look up ed and lorraine warren they are the real deal also so is paranormal state. all the others are posers.

this show sucks. to say the least. what's with the devices they carry around? paranormal state is much better

Rob / January 20, 2010 2:48 AM

They all suck, for you who say paranormal state is real , you are a fool, paranormal state is all fakery, members from the production crew stepped forward and revealed thye fake evidence and that there psychics get the whole scoop on what's going on before they go in

This show was surprisingly good- Way better than paranormal State and Ghost Lab- The caliber was right up there with Ghost Hunters- It was a great surprise!

Rob, if it was esposed, why is it still on. you know, paranormal state..I am watching the cops as it reels and I think there is plenty of paranormal places for more than a few shows. this isn't bad..they just need a girl and some time. They do need a better website.

Hello: The show that was on 1-26-2010, you went to a womans college in lake forest, il, was that barat college? because my daughter went to that college for three years..I know it was shut down, it was so expensive no body wanted to go there..I heard of ghost stories there..I love all these paranomal shows, I wish I could believe in this, but I think its just there imagination. but its good t.v.

Paranormal State isnt very good at all ... dood is such a tool! trying to act all Keanu Reeves.. These bozo cops provide good entertainment at least...

mary / January 28, 2010 12:37 PM

I am so glad I didn't listen to the comments that were made about this show,I think it is a great show,I ahve watched all of the other paramormal shows and this one is right up there with taps,I thought it was going to suck,so I recorded it to see if it was going to be a hit,and I was pleasantly surprised,it is truly a good show,ghost adventurs is ok,they just interview longer than they investigate,paranormal state is good,but,they need a lot more time space to really make it a good show. so ,to all of you who bashed paranormal cops,don't be a hater.
