Psychic Uri Geller’s mind field

'Mentalist' co-hosting NBC's 'Phenomenon'

Self-proclaimed psychic spoon bender and telepath Uri Geller is making a TV comeback — along with the controversies that defined his career in the 1970s.

Humbled on NBC’s “Tonight Show” 34 years ago when Geller found himself unable to warp any of the utensils provided by host Johnny Carson, the “mentalist” will be back at the Peacock this fall co-hosting “Phenomenon,” a version of his Israeli format “The Successor.” He joins A&E star Criss Angel in a search for amateur illusionists and psychics.

But Geller recently triggered indignation for forcing YouTube to take down clips of the “The Successor” that show him appearing to slip a device on his thumb in front before magically moving a compass needle with his mind.

All the attention, however, will likely only feed interest in Geller’s NBC show. He also has a German version of “The Successor” slated to bow next year on ProSieben.
