New: Mitch is hosting a show called Exploring the Unknown. Here's some information from the official FOX Family Channel site:

EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN seeks the truth behind extraordinary claims and phenomenon investigating everything from UFO sightings to miracle cures to psychics to con games to conspiracy theories, revealing hard facts, exposing frauds and hoaxes, highlighting the true mysteries that science has yet to explain. Hosted by "The X-Files'" Mitch Pileggi, EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN features a team of investigators led by Dr. Michael Shermer, head of the Skeptics Society and publisher of Skeptic magazine, and will match the world's leading scientific experts against those who make claims of the paranormal, the supernatural, and other seemingly unexplainable events. The secret tricks of "paranormal" cons and other frauds will be demonstrated by "inside" experts.

A dedicated fan, Ruthie Capella adds her own review of Mitch's performance as host:

"Exploring the Unknown" is hosted by Mitch Pileggi, the sexy co-star of The X-Files. Ironically, the show presents a scientific, skeptical viewpoint and offers rational, realistic explanations for many "unexplained" phenomena. Watch "Exploring the Unknown" on the Fox Family channel Friday nights at 9 pm Eastern/Pacific time for shows featuring astrology, fire walking, psychic powers, miracles, UFOs, lie detectors tests, and more.
