American Pickers airs episode featuring Frank Fritz after fans begged fired star to return amid low ratings

The History Channel series has been facing low ratings since Frank's removal.

On Saturday, American Pickers fans were treated to Frank, 56,

While he hasn't been rehired, the network did air an episode featuring the ex-star.

During the episode, Frank and current host Mike Wolfe chatted about Marie O'Day

a woman who was mummified by her boyfriend back in the 1920s

as they visited a location bursting at the brim with freak-show memorabilia.

Mike had the opportunity to buy the mummy during that pick, but opted to pass.

Frank was fired from American Pickers in March 2020, much to the surprise of fans.
