Shows involving Fred Willard are dropping like flies lately.
Two week’s after Fred was allegedly caught with his Willie in his hand at a Los Angeles adult theater, ABC has yanked his show off the air. The celebrity-studded improv show ”Trust Us With Your life” that Willard hosted will be cut short.
The Associated Press reports that ABC will pull the final two original episodes of the program and replace it with reruns of their clumsy comedy competition show “Wipeout.”
“Trust Us With Your Life” is a studio based improvisation series in the vain of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” featuring alums like Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie.
The show playfully picked apart the lives of celebrities like David Hasselhoff, Serena Williams, Jerry Springer, and the Osbournes.
The news comes after Willard was already fired from his role on the PBS show “Market Warriors.” That squeaky clean network pulled all unaired episodes featuring Willard once news broke of his arrest.
Willard was taken into custody on July 18 for reportedly exhibiting lewd conduct at the Tiki Theater in Hollywood. He has since gone on to “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” to defend himself.
“It’s very embarrassing,” he told host Jimmy Fallon. “ Let me just say this… Nothing happened. I did nothing wrong … I have great respect for the authorities … God bless them … But, when you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, everything seems suspicious.”
According to The Associated Press, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office has determined that the Willard will not be formally charged with lewd conduct, as his case is eligible for a diversion program. Instead, he will be required to complete a series of courses.
