Bounce TV to pull ‘The Cosby Show’ from its schedule following new guilty verdicts (exclusive)

Bounce TV is yanking “The Cosby Show” from its schedule just hours after Bill Cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

“Effective immediately, Bounce is pulling ‘The Cosby Show’ from our schedule,” a rep for the network told TheWrap.

“The Cosby Show” aired on Bounce TV as recently as 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Thursday. It was next scheduled to air the following day in the same time slots, though “The Hughley’s” will now run there instead each weekday.

Bounce initially picked up reruns of the ’80s and ’90s sitcom in late 2016, citing “popular demand” at the time. The online response to the cable channel’s decision back then was mixed, at best.

A jury found Cosby guilty Thursday in his retrial over accusations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. The judge allowed Cosby to be released on bail on Thursday, which CNN reports was in the amount of $1 million. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

Cosby, 80, was re-tried in a Pennsylvania court on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from Constand’s accusation that the comedian drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home outside of Philadelphia. The jury found him guilty in a unanimous vote on all three counts, after going into deliberations Wednesday. The trial was in its 14th day when the verdict was handed down.

After the verdict was read, prosecutors argued that Cosby should be held without bail, calling him a flight risk because, they said, he owns a private plane. To this, Cosby exclaimed “he doesn’t have a plane, you a-hole.”
