First of all, I don't think the first season was as bad as many on here (and in other places, too) claim this show to be. Yes, the cast is one of the clunkiest you can find on any reality-show nowadays ( my "favorite" is John's son), however I wouldn't bash the show for that.
I personally like the show because it goes beyond the usual GH, GHI, Ghost Adventures, etc.format, who only want to give proof that the paranormal exists. Sure, Ghost Hunters try to position themselves as the guys to call, when something paranormal is scaring you ("especially when it involves children"), but do they solve the problem? No. Do they find a solution to the hauntings they find? No. Except for a season one episode, where they called in a catholic priest to get rid of the ghosts, all they GH does is to tell the client at the end of every investigation that they basically shouldn't be afraid, that ghosts were people too and that they should peacefully co-exist with each other.
Haunted Collector tries to solve a problem. That's their premise. And while they don't do it perfectly, and sometimes make you feel that their decision-making process is kinda black-box-like (second season is way better, though, in terms of episode flow and production) I think, they are the only show out there who come up with a proper explanation for what the cause of the haunting is.
And as for John Zaffis doing the show to stealing stuff for his Museum... come on guys, do a little background check on the guy! He's a trusted authority in the field, with lots of street creds. If he wants to steal your haunted items, he could do it off-air much more efficiently.
