Showbiz is hard and it looks like Fred Willard may have blown it. For now, at least.
Following PBS' lead, ABC has decided to pull the remaining two episodes of the comedian's improv show, Trust Us With Your Life, and replace them with more Wipeout.
The network says the decision has nothing to do with the lewd conduct charge that the show's host received two weeks ago, but it looks like he had no idea the cancellation was coming. Just last week he tweeted:
I was not fired from TUWYL so B sure 2 watch Trust Us Wtih your life Tues, ABC 9

Guess ABC couldn't trust audiences to tune in to a show hosted by a guy who got caught with his pants down in an XXX movie theater.
Everybody makes mistakes, right?
