In case you’ve decided to not take my advice and watch Pushing Daisies there’s another option tonight at 8pm with the premiere of Phenomenon on NBC. Phenomenon is a reality show where illusionists will get a chance at becoming the next big thing in magic. Considering David Copperfield’s recent life troubles this is good timing! The series will bring together Uri Geller and that other guy known as Criss Angel (real name: Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos) as the hosts. In the promo below Angel details how he’s looking forward to calling out anyone who claims their tricks are supernatural. That’s a little odd considering Geller is all about the supernatural. Perhaps Angel will get called out on being such a hack or he’ll pull a trick where he makes his wife disappear so he can date other women!
Here are the details from NBC:
The exhilarating and mystifying live show is based on a successful Israeli version judged and monitored by Geller, which achieved a historical record-breaking viewing audience. The series showcases 10 carefully selected mentalists who will compete live against one another each week by demonstrating a wide spectrum of mystifying talents on a panel of celebrity guests who experience the spellbinding illusions along with the studio audience.
Together, Geller and Angel will assess the contestant’s talents each week and offer their unfiltered opinions. Ultimately, the fate of the winner is in the hands of the viewers at home, who will vote to determine which competing mentalist will receive the grand prize of $250,000 and become the next great mentalist.
