I think shows like that are popular because people are intrigued by the unknown. There are not many things in life that we, as the human race, haven't figured out at least to some degree. Death and the supernatural are the main two things that come to my mind, and because of that lack of knowledge, lack of definitive proof of what really IS when it comes to those things, we are drawn to those subjects.

It is what we do not understand or cannot explain that intrigues us the most. We now know much about spies, but the technology arouses our interest; ghosts as a phenomenon arouse curiosity.
Horror is usually what gets most peoples adrenaline up as well, and that helps!
