Fred Willard's 'Trust Us With Your Life' shelved by ABC
UPI News Service, 07/31/2012
ABC has taken Fred Willard's improv comedy show "Trust Us With Your Life" off its schedule, the network confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
The low-rated series will be replaced by reruns of the reality competition show "Wipeout," the entertainment industry trade newspaper reported.
The decision to ax "Trust Us..." was made two weeks after the 78-year-old actor was arrested by vice officers conducting a routine walk-through of an adult movie house. Willard was cited for lewd conduct and released from police custody.
PBS fired Willard as narrator of its new "Antiques Roadshow" spinoff "Market Warriors" shortly after the alleged incident.
Appearing on the chat show "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Willard said he was embarrassed by his arrest but denied any wrongdoing.
