Sounds like the first episode of The Chronicle News from the Edge
It was a tabloid newspaper that covered the phony weird
And paranormal stories you typically see at the check-out
Counter (bigfoot aliens demons etc)
Only the ghost,goblins and aliens of their stories were real.
Although the woman had been abducted so many times
She knew many alien species at first sight, the reporters
Didn't fly around in a spaceship. Then i remember the lead male character with i think another character driving in a car and then they start searching the car for some reason and when they get back in The male character looks in the rear view mirror and can see there's bright yellow eyes in the back seat.
The new guy and the seasoned photographer were following
A hunch about a creature, and were on a stake out in the junkyard.
They left the van to chase the creature down but lost it. The creature snuck into the back seat, and trashed the van.(I think it was a running joke
In the series) the photographer was always getting his van trashed by various creatures/aliens
