Bounce TV Acquires The Cosby Show for December; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 21, 2016)

The Cosby Show

For the first time in well over a year, The Cosby Show will be back on television this December. Bounce TV has acquired the rights to the '80s classic starring Bill Cosby. The sitcom will begin on December 19, airing weekdays at 6:00pm & 6:30pm. This will be the first time the sitcom has aired on a digital multicast network. Bounce TV previously aired reruns of the '90s Bill Cosby sitcom, Cosby. Of course with the sexual allegations against Bill Cosby, all of his series were removed on television by July 2015, as networks like Centric and TV Land removed The Cosby Show from its lineup, while Aspire TV stopped airing the '70s sitcom The Bill Cosby Show. Bounce TV has issued this statement regarding their decision to air The Cosby Show:

"Following the results of a qualitative research study which indicated demand from a vast majority of Bounce viewers to see The Cosby Show on television again, the network has made the decision to begin airing the series next month. While we take very seriously the accusations against Bill Cosby, our research showed that African-American consumers see a distinction between Bill Cosby, the man, and the iconic TV character Cliff Huxtable. Research and direct viewer feedback were the deciding factors in the network’s decision to move forward. The desire among African Americans to see the show on TV again is being reinforced on social media based upon overwhelmingly positive viewer response since the announcement."
