‘The Cosby Show’ Will Return To The Small Screen In December
Allegations of sexual assault by several women against legendary comedian Bill Cosby resulted in his popular sitcom, The Cosby Show, being banned from many television networks like BET and TV Land. Now, it’s been announced that the beloved 80s sitcom will return to Bounce TV near the end of the year.
A tweet sent out by the television network, which caters to black viewers, reveals that the television show will return to their network on Dec. 19.
“You asked, and we heard you loud and clear, Bouncers. We’re bringing #TheCosbyShow back by popular demand!” the tweet read.

The response was mixed. One user in favor of the decision wrote “Good cause if Trump can be president we should be able to watch Cosby show,” while another user who was against the choice to bring it back wrote, “sorry would rather not imagine him drugging & raping those women between scenes.”
