Penn & Teller: Fool Us is a British-American television programme. Hosted by Jonathan Ross and filmed at the Rio All-Suites Hotel in Las Vegas, Fool Us is a magiccompetition in which magicians perform tricks in front of American magician-comedian duo Penn & Teller. If Penn & Teller cannot figure out how a trick was done, the magician or magicians who performed it win a five-star trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller's world-famous show, also at the Rio Hotel & Casino.
It was announced on 28 June 2012 that ITV had cancelled the show, despite its averaging 4 million viewers, higher than the timeslot average. After finding moderate ratings success in running the ITV-produced episodes during the summer of 2014, The CW ordered a second season of original episodes to air in 2015. The second season has been a ratings hit for The CW, giving the network its highest ratings in that time slot compared to the previous 5 years. On August 11, 2015 the series was renewed for a third season by The CW.
