A bearded Lance Burton stopped by the studios of WHAS 11 to talk about the Louisville premiere of Billy Topit, Master Magician, the charity tie in to the Kentucky Humane Society do a little magic. The Courier-Journal has more details… and, of course, this year’s combined IBM/SAM convention follows.

Mac King made an appearance, too. You can see his video clip here.

TV round up: America’s Got Talent returns tonight, not sure yet if we will see any magic. Penn & Teller: Fool Us will start its new season Thursday and Masters Of Illusion will continue their new season Friday, both on The CW. Check your local listings!

Robin Leach is on vacation and Jeff McBride filled in yesterday to write Leach’s Review-Journal column.
