Now that Bill Cosby has been “caught” admitting on record he raped a bunch of women, the public can finally start accepting that he raped a bunch of women and start acting appropriately.
In response to the shocking revelation, Atlanta-based television station Bounce TV announced it would immediately stop airing reruns of Cosby’s sitcom Cosby. Centric, a BET-owned network, will also follow suit by canceling all scheduled episodes of The Cosby Show “until further notice.”
The Cosby Show first aired on NBC from 1984 to 1992, and starred Cosby and Phylicia Rashad. Cosby reunited the comedian/rapist and Rashad on CBS where it aired from 1996 to 2000.
Good for Centric and Bounce TV, but, like, it really, really shouldn’t have taken this long. TV Land (promoter of good morals and friend to the elderly) pulled Cosby Show reruns in 2014, and I bet Mr. or Ms. TV Land feels pretty comfy on his or her deservedly high horse.
Hulu and Amazon have yet to pull Cosby’s content. Boo Hulu and Amazon.
