Additional Airing Notes:
A long time ago, there was a show called Penn & Teller: Fool Us which aired on ITV, hosted by Jonathan Ross where magicians perform tricks and Penn & Teller have to guess how it was done. ITV dropped it, but the format was sold to The CW in the US (with Ross still hosting), and that version has now been bought by Channel 5 to air back over here.
