A while back, I mentioned a new TV show premiering on the Sci-Fi Channel titled UFO Hunters. At first, I thought I got it wrong when I saw a promo for UFO Hunters on the History Channel. Turns out it's two different shows on two two different stations with two different investigation styles that just happen to have the same name. These shows haven't even premiered yet and there may already be controversy.
According to UFOHunters.net, there's supposedly a battle over who came up with the name first. It seems the History Channel's UFO Hunters was originally called UFO Road trip (and is still being referred to that in some cases). Then, Sci-Fi announced their show in July. For whatever reason, the History Channel changed their show from UFO Road trip to UFO Hunters and filed for trademark six days before Sci-Fi. Therefore, trying to stake their claim on the name. Whether all this is true or not, I don't know.
I'm not a big fan of UFOlogy which is why you won't find much of it here. So, I don't know if I'll be watching either one of them. Both of these shows are premiering on the same night at the same time, February 6th 10 pm Eastern. I guess we will see which one comes out on top. My money is on Sci-Fi.
