* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: In November 2014, several television networks -- most notably, [=TVLand=] -- announced that effective immediately, they would stop airing reruns of the series due to growing allegations that Cosby sexually assaulted several women. [=TVLand=] even deleted references to the situation comedy from the cable channel's website, a rare step as even references to past rerun packages can be accessed, at least indirectly. Centric (a spin-off of BET) continued to air the show even after sister network [=TVLand=] dropped it and even as the number of accusers grew past 30... that is, until July 2015, when a 2005 deposition in a sexual assault claim against Cosby was released in which he admitted to giving Quaaludes to women whom he wanted to have sex with, resulting in Centric pulling the show amid the damning (though not likely to result in a felony conviction, due to the lapse in the statue of limitations in the claims) evidence.[[note]]Bounce TV also removed Cosby and Phylicia Rashad's late-1990s sitcom ''Cosby'' (which was misreported by some outlets regarding that removal as being the more well-known and older ''The Cosby Show'', which Bounce has never carried), but not the Cosby-created ''Series/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids''.[[/note]] Though Cosby hasn't been criminally or civilly charged nor is it likely he will address the claims thoroughly and honestly, the series will certainly not air in the foreseeable future, if ever again, at least on the major cable networks.
