Break Out The Pudding Pops! Bill Cosby Is Coming Back To TV.

By Joanna Robinson | Trade News | January 22, 2014 | Comments ()


Don’t call it a reboot, but Bill Cosby is coming back to TV as the paterfamilias of a multi-generational family. In an attempt to resuscitate their comedy line-up, NBC is bringing on Cosby to do, well, pretty much exactly what he’s done in the past. The show will, reportedly, deal with Cosby’s “take on marriage and parenting.” Cosby promises “a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness.”

That’s all very well and good, Mr. Cosby, but we live in the internet age now. Your show full of warmth and family values better also deliver some highly gif-able mome-oh. Oh we’re good here.

One more thing, and I think I speak for everyone when I say this: Phylicia Rashād or get the f*ck out.

    I liked the Cosby Show, but I seem to recall that it had gotten kind of less than fabulous as the seasons stretched on. They bowed out before people really turned against them. They'd better have some fresh ideas if they don't want to fade out quickly.

  • Salieri2

    I think I agree with Alyssa Rosenberg here: "It’s another [thing] to say that in a network television moment when the closest thing we have to a black father figure is the anxious cop Terry Crews plays (very well) on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, that the logical step is not to advance the careers of other actors, and the ideas of new creators, expanding the range of characters and visions of families we see on screen, but to skip that process and go back to Bill Cosby. Bringing back Cosby not to supplement an entertainment ecosystem that is rich with depictions of black family life and the perspectives of black creators, but to stand in for the absence of that richness, feels like an admission of failure, or worse, lack of effort."

  • Oh my god, Cosby show. How I've missed you. I wanted Claire Huxtable to be my mom so bad.

  • John W

    They should air it just before Michael J Fox show.

  • P.Yew

    I can't wait for the drugging and rape scenes!

  • I don't see how anything will top the genius and brilliance of the original "Cosby Show". :)

  • Jim

    I gotta say that 1st photo looks like he's brought pudding to his pants. Clamp down and hustle, Bill, it's that way 3rd door on the right!

    YES. A million times, YES!

  • BWeaves

    Can Bob Newhart be his neighbor? Please?

  • e jerry powell

    You'll have to drag him, kicking and screaming, out of "retirement."

  • Mrs. Julien

    Hi honey!

  • e jerry powell

    What? I have been RIGHT HERE!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Hee hee. I remember that second episode. She goes on a crash diet to fit into that dress. Something about killing someone for a crouton.

    The more I look back on it, and the more I've seen her in other things, it's true. Rashad really is a tremendous artist, plus someone of great personal dignity.

  • DeltaBurke

    That second gif isn't from that crash diet episode; in that diet episode, she was trying to get into some gold dress. That episode was bad assed though because of the amazing jeweled parrot leotard she wore in Debbie Allen's aerobics class. Amazing!

    And I concur: "Phylicia Rashād or get the f*ck out."

  • PDamian

    And the first African-American woman to win a Tony for best leading actress in a play. And now she holds the Denzel Washington Chair in Theatre at Fordham U. Amazing woman.

    I met her and her sister once, they are just the most lovely people ever.
