Kevin Spacey Cut From ‘Carol Burnett Show’ 50th Anniversary Special.

In the wake of the mounting sexual assault and harassment allegations against Kevin Spacey, CBS is severing ties with him as well. The actor is being cut out of the upcoming 50th anniversary special of “The Carol Burnett Show,” a representative for the network confirmed to Variety.

Spacey took part in the taping of the special back in October in Los Angeles. In the special, which will air on December 3, he performed a musical number with Carol Burnett, Kristin Chenoweth, and Bernadette Peters. A source close to the production tells Variety no decision has been made on the status of the number itself, but confirmed that Spacey would not be featured in the final telecast.

During the taping, which Variety attended, he exhibited great excitement at being a part of the evening and entertained the audience in between acts by doing impressions and by jumping into the famous dentist chair from Tim Conway and Harvey Korman’s classic sketch.
