First live 'exorcism' to air on TV for Halloween

I'm not sure what they hope to achieve with this... apart from publicity!
First live 'exorcism' to air on TV for Halloween
The ritual will take place in the original 'Exorcist House' in the US

“TV history” will be made this Halloween, apparently, as the first ever live televised 'exorcism' will take place.

Destination America, a Discovery owned station, will broadcast the event the night before All Hallows’ Eve, 30 October, as a tribute to the original Exorcist ritual which took place in 1949.

To make the whole affair much spookier, the exorcism will take place in the original ‘Exorcist House’, the same building the infamous ritual was performed which inspired both the novel and film The Exorcist.

In a statement, the network said: "No one has ever attempted to rid the lurking spirits and demons that inhabit this home — until now."

Exorcism: Live will see a team explore the haunted house, from attic to basement, searching for "whatever or whomever has scared Americans to death for decades." This won’t be some mindless wander looking for ghosts though; the team will be equipped with the latest technologies and shall be documenting everything to see if demons really do exist.

In a nutshell: ratings and money.
