MyNetworkTV Adds "Masters of Illusion," "Vice Squad" in January
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- MyNetworkTV has outlined its winter schedule, which will see the addition of two new series - "Masters of Illusion" and "Vice Squad."

The pair will air Mondays at 9:00/8:00c and Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c, respectively, starting the week of January 5. Previous occupants "Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed" and "Jail" wrap their seasons later this month.

"Illusion" is a weekly follow up to a quartet of specials that ran on the netlet last season, subtitled "Impossible Magic." "Squad" then is presumably either the latest franchise from "Jail" and "Street Patrol" producer Langley Productions or a repackaged version of Spike TV's "Real Vice Cops Uncut," which ran for six episodes back in August.
