ABC has pulled new improv comedy series Trust Us With Your Life after two weeks on the air. The series was hosted by Fred Willard, and the move comes two weeks after his arrest for lewd contact. Insiders insist that the two incidents are not related. Indeed, unlike PBS, which fired Willard as the as the voice of Market Warriors right after the alleged incident, ABC kept Trust Us on the air last week as scheduled. Willard himself tweeted about that, “I was not fired from “TUWYL,” so B sure 2 watch,” he wrote last Tuesday. But the controversy didn’t translate to a ratings bump, with Trust Me tumbling 33% from its anemic premiere to a 0.6/2 in adults 18-49 and less than 2 million viewers to become ABC’s lowest-rated telecast of the summer. The network will replace the remaining episodes of Trust Me with Wipeout repeats.
