Before we talk specifically about the very peculiar Celebracadabra , which premieres Sunday, it's worth remembering how very, very peculiar is the grasping for contemporary fame.

Not only are the "celebrities" fading from view, but 4 out of 6 of the "celebrity magicians" are as well. This show would more aptly be titled, "The Has-Beens of Magic" or something like that.

Their only claim to fame these days is performing at Monday Night Magic in Manhattan, where they are each paid $35 to $50 to perform there. No successful magician would be could dead performing there.

Simon Lovell is an alchoholic. If you see him performing in New York City on Saturday evenings, he has about 20 people in attendance, and he is sloshed during the show.

Rocco's brain is fried from too many drugs. Can see that easily by taking one look those lunatic eyes of his.

Silly Billy isn't even a magician. He knows maybe ten magic tricks. This can be seen by the tricks he chooses -- all self working props any clown can purchase for $10 at a magic store. While Silly Billy still performs childrens shows in NYC, most parents will no longer hire him because he's too mean and nasty with kids. He's a burn out.

One only need take one look at Murray to wonder what planet he flew in from. He was so heavily ridiculed on another dating reality show, where the girl kept laughing at him and the producers referred to him as a flamer. You'd think Murray would have learned his lesson and stayed away from reality shows?

What a dumb review! I got to the bottom of the page and realized the bonehead reviewer never actually said anything about the show itself. Good or bad? What's the deal? I knew who was in in from watching the commercial. And of course the celebs aren't top shelf. It's VH1! They don't exactly fill their rosters w/ A-listers. How about a REVIEW next time.(Did this guy even watch the show?) Can anyone tell me if it's worth checking out tonight?
