UFO Hunters is an American documentary television series that premiered on January 30, 2008 on History.

Birnes, and his team of experts – researcher and scuba diver Pat Uskert, mechanical engineer and MIT researcher Ted Acworth, and investigative biologist intern Jeff Tomlinson. Each episode, the team checks out reports of strange aerial phenomena where they interview supposed witnesses of UFO sightings, alien encounters, and abductions. They also analyze any evidence collected such as photographs, video, or recovered physical material. They also conduct research with other investigators and scientists in the field in an attempt to find conclusive evidence that a report is real or a hoax. The show also investigates long standing UFO stories such as the Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash incident and other famous sightings throughout history. The show should not be confused with another show entitled UFO Hunters which premiered the same day and time on the Sci Fi Channel.
