Bounce TV Pulls ‘Cosby’ Reruns, BET’s Centric Yanks ‘The Cosby Show’

UPDATE: In the wake of the latest news regarding comedian Bill Cosby’s rape allegations, African-American-skewing network Bounce TV has announced that it will immediately cease airing reruns of television series “Cosby,” while the BET-owned Centric Network has pulled “The Cosby Show.”

Cosby came under more scrutiny yesterday after news broke that he admitted to drugging women for sex. Since last year, he has been openly battling multiple allegations of rape.

A competitor of BET, Bounce TV is an African-American focused, advertiser-supported digital multicast channel carried by broadcast TV stations around the country. It was co-founded by Martin Luther King III and Georgia politician Andrew Young.

“Cosby” was a CBS sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2000. It starred Bill Cosby and his “Cosby Show” co-star Phylicia Rashad, as well as Madeline Kahn, Jurnee Smollett and others.

Meanwhile, Centric TV, which is geared toward African-American women, is pulling all episodes of “The Cosby Show” indefinitely, beginning Wednesday. “The Cosby Show” aired from 1984 to 1992.
