The network confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that it has pulled the remaining few original episodes of the low-rated series from the schedule. The move comes two weeks after Willard’s lewd conduct arrest at an adult movie theater.
Trust Us hit a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49 last week and drew only 1.83 million viewers, making it the lowest-rated broadcast the network aired all summer.
ABC will replace the show, which airs on Tuesdays, with reruns of Wipeout.
Willard was arrested July 18 during a routine police search of Los Angeles’ Tiki Theater, where one of the films being shown was a XXX parody of Lifetime’s Jennifer Love Hewitt series The Client List, according to TMZ. He was brought into custody and released soon after.
Following the arrest, Willard was fired by PBS as narrator of its new Antiques Roadshow spinoff Market Warriors.
He has since called the incident a “big misunderstanding” and tweeted that what actually happened was “much more PG.” In an appearance last week on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Willard said he was embarrassed by his arrest but insisted he had done nothing wrong.
The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office determined that Willard’s case was eligible for a diversion program that will keep him from being formally charged with lewd conduct if he completes the required courses.
