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.
