This summer, The CW is hoping for some ratings “magic.” They’ve got the new Penn & Teller: Fool Us series and they’ve also revived the Masters of Illusion TV show as well. Will either be a hit or could they both be cancelled? Will one outshine the other? Stay tuned!
Masters of Illusion debuted on cable in 2000 and ran for two seasons on Pax TV and then for one on MyNetworkTV. Dean Cain is the host of this program that features magicians as they perform escapes, large-scale illusions, and sleight-of-hand tricks for a live audience.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
Final season averages: 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.13 million total viewers.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Masters of Illusion TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a fifth season?
