ABC Pulls TRUST US WITH YOUR LIFE Following Fred Willard's Arrest

ABC-Pulls-TRUST-US-WITH-YOUR-LIFE-From-Tuesday-Line-Up-20120731

ABC has pulled its struggling newcomer TRUST US WITH YOUR LIFE from its Tuesday lineup. Repeats of "Wipeout" will instead fill the show's Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c slot for the next two weeks - July 31 and August 7 - with repeats of "Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" then taking over on August 14 as previously announced.

The show was hosted by comedian Fred Willard who was arrested last week after police apparently caught him touching his genitals in an adult movie theatre. Willard was fired last week as host of PBS's Market Warriors over concerns from executives that he might be a "distraction" for viewers.

Willard has denied the allegations against him, but will reportedly participate in a counseling program in place of serving time in prison. On an appearance on last week's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Willard called the incident "very painful". "It's very embarrassing. It's embarrassing as hell! But let me say this: nothing happened. I did nothing wrong, everything's being sorted out as we speak," he said.

Willard is best known for his roles in Best in Show, Everybody Loves Raymond and Modern Family.

The improvisational comedy series will not air its two remaining episodes.
