David Blaine 'Real or Magic' on ABC Last Night [VIDEO]

According to the Hollywood Reporter, David Blaine: Real or Magic aired a 90-minute special last night and featured Blaine performing for celebrities including Ricky Gervais, Woody Allen, Robert De Niro, Katy Perry, Stephen Hawking and former President George W. Bush.  "I went after all of the people that I loved the most and surprised them and did magic in places that I knew people would understand that I couldn't have staged or set up or had people pretending," Blaine told The Hollywood Reporter during a private show previewing some of the magic featured on the special. "I wanted it to all be believable and went after people you never could get to pretend. I combined that with going into the streets and encountering all different people to do magic nonstop."  The program fetched a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.6 million viewers, besting all other ABC offerings for the night, and giving the network a nightly average of a 2.3 adults rating and 6.9 million viewers.
