Big news, reality TV lovers! The CW has added two new reality shows to their roster.
Later this year, The CW will roll out Barber Battle, a brand new, half-hour reality competition series hosted by Who Wants to Be a Millionaire‘s Cedric the Entertainer, and Penn & Teller: Fool Us, a one-hour competition series celebrating magic featuring the legendary duo Penn & Teller.
BARBER BATTLE will visit different barbershops across the country in each of the 10 episodes. The most talented barbers from the Bronx to the ‘burbs will compete with their clippers to showcase their artistic designs and be crowned the creator of the best “crowns” in town. Going beyond mere hairstyles, these amazing stylists use their scissors and clippers to create astonishing works of art ranging from portraits to landmarks to ballparks… all on someone’s head! Judges, locations and contestants will be announced at a later date.
On each of the nine episodes of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, aspiring magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try to fool the world-famous team of Penn & Teller. Anyone who succeeds wins the right to perform with Penn & Teller in their celebrated show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The live studio audience and the TV audience watch along with Penn & Teller as they try to figure out the secrets. Penn and Teller see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out. The audience knows there are no camera tricks, secret edits or helpful camera cuts… the magic is all real! British television and radio personality Jonathan Ross (“Friday Night with Jonathan Ross”) serves as host.
Stay tuned for more details on these new reality series!
