A day after newly unsealed court documents revealed that Bill Cosby testified in 2005 to giving prescription drugs to women with the intention of having sex with them, two TV networks have reacted swiftly. Both Centric and Bounce TV plan to pull reruns of The Cosby Show and Cosby from their respective networks starting as early as today. Centric, a BET-owned network that serves a predominantly black female audience, will begin yanking Cosby Show episodes on Wednesday "until further notice." Bounce TV, an Atlanta-based network also serving black audiences, has already pulled all reruns of Cosby, a comedy that reunited Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashad. The Cosby Show originally aired on NBC from 1984 to 1992 for eight seasons. TV Land also pulled Cosby Show episodes last year in the wake of multiple sexual-abuse allegations against Cosby. Vulture has reached out to Hulu and Amazon, where the series is still currently available to stream, for comment.
