We are EXTREMELY excited about this because we hope it means The CW will Thanksgiving week magic specials a tradition again in the spirit of the World’s Greatest specials! The Hollywood Christmas Parade will air Friday December 13, also on The CW, and it often features performers from Masters Of Illusion. Speaking of Masters Of Illusion, they have a new Christmas Special this year, scheduled for Wednesday, December 18 (also on The CW). Check your local listings as we get closer to the holidays and, if The CW sticks to its traditions, all of their programming will be available to stream for free shortly after airing.
