ABC Doesn’t Trust Fred Willard’s ‘Trust Us with Your Life’
It hasn’t be a great July for Freddie Wills. ABC is taking Trust Us with Your Life off the air and replacing it with reruns of that hilarious comedy about people falling on their respective faces, Wipeout. Though ABC is owned by the prudish Mickey Mouse, it seems like this decision was mostly a ratings call. Trust Us was not doing too well. It seems like people either didn’t like the idea of short-form improv games being incorporated into premise based long-form or, more likely, they didn’t like all that long-form improv narrative getting in the way of Wayne Brady being a real silly head.
