The Cosby Show Returns to TV One; Investigation Discovery Investigates Bill Cosby

The Cosby Show

The Cosby Show has returned to cable television, as TV One has very quietly added the sitcom starring Bill Cosby to its schedule as of last weekend (May 20-21). This is the second network to bring the series back, as digital simulcast network Bounce TV brought it back in December. The sitcom is airing on TV One weekdays from 6-8pm (ironically the same timings as Bounce) and 1-2am. Weekend marathon blocks are also airing, so check listings for timings. The Cosby Show joins the lineup with other sitcoms like spin-off A Different World, Sanford & Son, Good Times, The Jeffersons and Living Single. In this legendary sitcom, Dr. Cliff Huxtable and his attorney wife, Clair, are an upper-middle class couple who are balancing successful careers with the demanding role of parenting five children. As they preside over their raucous brood in their Brooklyn home, the Huxtables confront real-life issues with humor and love. We can't take away the fact that this sitcom is a classic.

Investigation Discovery

While The Cosby Show is certainly making its way back to TV, the Bill Cosby news continues. For more than five decades Bill Cosby warmed the hearts of fans nationwide through his comedy shows, his enduring hit television series The Cosby Show and his notable charitable works. But is it possible there was something more sinister lurking behind his wit, charm and generosity? In one of the most stunning recent reversals in public life, more than 50 women have come forward in recent years with allegations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them. Now, on the eve of his explosive criminal trial for the alleged 2004 assault of Andrea Constand, Investigation Discovery (ID) in partnership with American Media Inc, (AMI), Weinstein Television, and Jupiter Entertainment, presents Bill Cosby: An American Scandal. This one-hour special takes viewers deep inside the secret life of Cosby and his family, shining a light on the drama and dysfunction behind this seemingly perfect household. Bill Cosby: An American Scandal premieres worldwide Monday, June 5 at 9/8c, only on Investigation Discovery.

black-ish Spin-off college-ish Coming to Freeform; NBC Picks Up 2nd Season of Trial & Error

Yara Shahidi

The black-ish spin-off didn't get picked up by ABC last week at upfront, but it has now has been ordered to series...on one of their sister networks. Freeform, Disney's young adult television and streaming network, continues to grow its roster of original series by ordering scripted comedy college-ish (working title), a spin-off of ABC's award-winning hit series black-ish, starring breakout star Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson and Deon Cole as Charlie Telphy. Freeform has ordered 13 episodes of the half-hour, single-camera comedy which is set to premiere early 2018 on Freeform and the Freeform App available on connected TV, mobile devices and online.

college-ish follows the Johnson's eldest daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. From black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris comes a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Yara is joined by black-ish's Deon Cole (Charlie), who moonlights as an adjunct marketing professor, as well as funny new characters both in the administration and student body who all reflect the complex and hilarious points of views that populate college campuses. Chris Parnell as Dean Parker, Mallory Sparks as Miriam, Matt Walsh as President Schock and Trevor Jackson as Aaron round-out the cast.

Trial & Error

Trial & Error wasn't picked up last week for a second season by NBC, but now they have ordered that second season after all! NBC has ordered 10 episodes to premiere in mid-season 2018. 13 episodes aired this season. In the spirit of true crime documentaries, this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy features bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D'Agosto), who heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case. His mission? To defend an eccentric "rollercizing" poetry professor (John Lithgow) accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife. Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits, Josh suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty. The comedy stars John Lithgow, Nicholas D'Agosto, Sherri Shepherd, Jayma Mays, Steven Boyer and Krysta Rodriguez.
