"Penn & Teller's Home Invasion Magic" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) sends the comedic magicians (for want of a better term) on the road, performing in public locations, such as a mall and a restaurant, and even in private homes. Drew Carey and co-stars Kathy Kinney and Christa Miller will be on hand to help.
