"The Cosby Show" Reruns Pulled From Air Amid Bill Cosby's Guilty Verdict

The beloved series will not air on a noted television station from here on out.

Bill Cosby was recently found guilty of sexual assault in relation to the allegations brought forward by Andrea Constand and a flurry of other female accusers. As a result, a television station will be pulling The Cosby Show from its roster in regard to the comedian's conviction. 

"Effective immediately, Bounce is removing The Cosby Show,"  a representative for the Atlanta-based station revealed in a statement issued to various media outlets. 

Bounce TV began broadcasting reruns of the show in 2015 after signing a multi-network deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter

Cosby starred as the title character in the hit comedy that ran for eight seasons and was showered with critical accolades, while also gaining a devoted trans-generational fanbase. 

Bounce had initially scrapped reruns of the comedian's 1990s CBS sitcom Cosby in 2015 following the first round of sexual assault allegations pinned against the disgraced star. However, The Cosby Show spinoff series A Different World remains on the network's roster as of today.
