Mas­ters of Il­lu­sion / 8:00pm (50) Magic pre­vails for an­other sum­mer as this show­case for pres­tidig­i­ta­tors starts its fourth sea­son, with the ami­able Dean Cain con­tin­u­ing as the se­ries’ host. The first new in­stall­ment — “Crazy, Crazy Cards and Stilly Sil­hou­ettes” — is likely to have its deck stacked, quite lit­er­ally. Nathan Bur­ton, Jib­rizy, Joshua Jay, Far­rell Dil­lon, Billy Kidd, Bill Cook and Xavier Mor­timer are the guest il­lu­sion­ists fea­tured. An­other new episode fol­lows.

Killjoys / 8:00pm (Syfy) Still reel­ing from the dev­as­tat­ing losses they suf­fered last sea­son, Dutch, Johnny and D’avin (Han­nah JohnKa­men, Aaron Ash­more, Luke Macfar­lane) go on the of­fen­sive in the Sea­son 2 pre­miere “Boon­dog­gle.” With the help of an ob­nox­ious black mar­ket dealer, Dutch and D’avin search for a weapon that will draw out the Hullen. Mean­while, Johnny re­ceives an SOS from Clara (Stephanie Leonidas) that leads him into the un­der­ground world of Hack­mods.

The Great Bri­tish Bak­ing Show / 9:00pm (22) 1:00am (22) 4:00am (22) 9:00pm (26.4) Whether things go bet­ter with bat­ter is up to the cooks to prove in a new episode re­volv­ing around that in­gre­di­ent, which first comes into play in a round that re­quires it to re­main uni­form across the en­tire batch of one recipe. Then, it fig­ures into a tech­ni­cal chal­lenge also in­volv­ing a sweet fill­ing and ic­ing.

Din­ers, Drive-Ins and Dives / 9:00pm (Food Net) 12:00am (Food Net) A new episode called “Is­land and Desert” finds host Guy Fieri start­ing out in the lat­ter — specif­i­cally, Palm Desert, Calif., where a cafe dishes out such tasty fare as a suc­cu­lent rib melt and break­fast tarts. Later, in Maui, Hawaii, a funky gluten-free spot makes full-fla­vored pizza, plus fish and chips. Fi­nally, in Vir­ginia Beach, Va., an off­beat Caribbean eatery serves up jerk pork and mama’s beef stew.

Dean Cain hosts “Mas­ters of Il­lu­sion” Fri­day on The CW.
