Close Up Kings: Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning Tuesday, Jan. 6
Close Up Kings brings audiences the adventures of three best friends, who also happen to be America’s top sleight-of-hand artists. Magick Balay, Loki, and Johnny Blaze travel from city to city taking on different challenges and attempting to outperform one another. Viewers will be enthralled by the trio’s carefully orchestrated and artfully executed capers and tricks that become more complex as the stakes get higher. From bringing a bird back to life and teleporting a person 700 yards across the desert, to performing an amazing Houdini-style jail escape in front of a crowd, these magicians will have audiences asking, “how did they do that?!”
The series premiere episode sees the NYC magicians escape a hardcore prison – restrained in strait jackets, padlocks and chains! Magick, Loki and Jonny wow crowds with tricks at Time Square and a disappearing act in Central Park while in the Big Apple.

The Liquidator: Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning Thursday, Jan. 8
Liquidation King Jeff Schwarz is back – haggling, trading, and bulldozing his way through a new season of high-octane buying and selling. This season turns up the heat as Jeff tests the boundaries of his business, going after deals outside his comfort zone that few other liquidators would dare touch.
In the Season 4 premiere episode of The Liquidator Daniel makes deals for a load of LED screens and Chinese merchandise without consulting Jeff. Meanwhile a cattle farmer wants to trade a steer for some furniture, so Jeff goes whole-cow into the beef business – but a mathematical error leaves him red-faced in front of new employee Ian.
