On Thursday, after comedian Bill Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, Bounce TV announced it would pull the plug on the 1984 comedy The Cosby Show -92 of Cosby from the broadcast schedule.
A digital multicast network that bills itself as “the first African-American broadcast network” and whose founders include Martin Luther King III and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young, Bounce continues to make college-based spin-off, A Different World.
It’s easy to understand why the network didn’t want to remind viewers of the disconnect between Cosby and Cliff Huxtable, the amiable obstetrician-gynecologist and father of five who helped cement the actor’s image. comedy is “America’s Dad”.
But those who still want to play with Huxtables can. As of Friday, TV One still has The Cosby Show on its schedule.
Amazon Prime customers can watch at any time. All eight seasons are available in the streaming service’s library, free to subscribers.
