PBS Gives Fred Willard The Pink Stroke Slip

fred willard gets fired by pbs

Tough luck, Fred!

As soon as PBS heard about his lewd conduct arrest, Fred Willard got the Market Warriors boot.

Already working on a new and improved version of the series, the network doesn't even want unaired episodes to be seen ANYWHERE.
