Bounce TV is bringing back The Cosby Show… after pulling the reruns when allegations against Cosby surfaced…
Thank you for upholding one of the most sacred principles in our “American Justice System” that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty;
The network said after careful research and evaluation, a majority of their viewers wanted to see the show on television again.
The Cosby Show will begin airing on December 19 on Bounce.
The Cosby Show is an American television sitcom starring Bill Cosby, which aired for eight seasons on NBC from September 20, 1984 until April 30, 1992. The show focuses on the Huxtable family, an upper-middle-class African-American family living in Brooklyn, New York.
The Cosby show “was TV’s biggest hit in the 1980s, and almost single-handedly revived the sitcom genre and NBC’s ratings fortunes”
Bill Cosby expects to be cleared of a criminal sexual assault charge and restart his entertainment career, his lawyer argues in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by seven women.
Attorney Angela Agrusa is urging a judge to seal documents that contain information about Cosby’s negotiated compensation for his performances and other personal financial information.
The women suing Cosby in federal court in Massachusetts argue that he has no future in show business and won’t be hurt by disclosing that information.
Cosby’s attorney Angela Agrusa, in a written response filed Thursday, called that claim “baseless.”
“When Mr. Cosby is cleared from all liability and charges … he expects to resume his career, and there is no reason to believe otherwise,” she wrote. “But disclosure of this type of financial and business information is irreversible. Even after his name is cleared, if released to the public, this information would improperly restrain his employment and tie his hands for renegotiation.”
Cosby, 79, also faces several lawsuits around the country filed by women who allege he defamed them when he publicly branded them as liars through statements made by his attorneys or other representatives.
Cosby, who has been married for decades, has denied the women’s accusations.
