According to reports from the Television Critics Association meeting, the CW just purchased nine episodes of Penn & Teller: Fool Us for U.S. broadcast.
The show is fantastic but previously only available in the UK.
Aspiring magicians perform their best trick and if Penn & Teller cannot figure out the secret, the magician wins a trip to Vegas to perform at the Rio Hotel and Casino.
There have been some great performances including that of Inside Magic Favorite Shawn Farquhar. Check out the YouTube version of his work here.
It appears the CW deal is to purchase the rights for the nine episodes already filmed. There was no word on whether the broadcaster would have rights to make a second season for the US.
