Bill Cosby Returning to Television in New NBC Sitcom

Thirty years ago, The Cosby Show introduced American families to the day-to-day lives of the Huxtables, a successful African-American family with Bill Cosby starring as their patriarch.  Now, it looks like Cosby will be returning to television by way of a new family sitcom set up at NBC.  The new half-hour comedy once again features Cosby at the head of a multi-generational family, and will serve to being his take on marriage and parenting to the forefront.  Cosby and producer Tom Werner are currently meeting with writers for the project.  The show is expected to take a look at the love between family members, “warts and all.”  I’d love to see Cosby back on TV, as long as he takes all of his old sweaters out of storage.  Let us know what you think in the comments!

    NBC had hit rock bottom

    You know a blog doesn’t make money when the janky affiliate ads are larger then some of the posts. It’s a shame that the internet has to work this way. I’d would pay for a monthly Collier subscription, but that’s probably never going to happen.

    I will be 23 in less then a month. I don’t think Bill Cosby has even been relevant in my life time. I wanted to make a joke comment for this article, but I know literally nothing about him other than he is a Black Man who did a lot for improving White America’s perception of Black Families a long time ago.

    It does kind of look like they are going after the Modern Family market with this one though. Best of luck to them I guess, I have no real interest in the show and I’m weary about NBC though since they canceled My Name is Earl and they green lit Whitney.

      Are you kidding me? I’m 23 and I know him. My friends do too. I guess you didn’t grow up watching Nick at Nite…

        I’m 22. I know who Bill Cosby is.
        Never thought he was funny, or entertaining.
        Maybe it’s just Me and Leo over here, but I have no want to see him have his own show.
        Do I think He can have some amazing quotes and be one of the most real people in the business, of course, but do I think his show will be anything like that? Not at all.
        The Cosby Show, was awful, it was beloved for it’s time, but so were a lot more sitcoms that wouldn’t succeed with today’s audience.
        Maybe I’m just drinking too much Haterade, but this is dumb. And Yes, that’s the most intelligent argument I could offer.

        “The Cosby show was awful…” please don’t speak that out loud to anyone who was actually around during it’s run. For me and many others around my age( I’m 32 ) it’s one the most loved sitcoms of all times. I guess I can’t be positive but I truly believe that there is whole bunch in there that is timeless and can be enjoyed by most people because it is truly relate-able.

        I know him well enough to know that he is a model citizen and represents the morals and family values that a person should strive for, but in regards to his filmography and that sort of thing, I know that he was in a movie called Lenord Part 6 which is considered one of the worst movies of all time, but I only know that because it made worst movies ever lists.

      He’s one of the best stand up comedians of all time.

  • Robert Colontonio

    why.his shows were so incredibly bland and boring and as unrealistic as any show can be.he was a good stand up but his constant mugging does not do well over a full season of shows.he should just stay where he is and count his pudding money and be happy.
