Earlier today, disgraced actor and comedian Bill Cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent sexual assault again Andrea Constand, and it looks like the fallout has already begun.
Deadline reports Bounce TV has removed reruns of his former sitcom The Cosby Show from it's scheduling lineup. "Effective immediately, Bounce is removing The Cosby Show from our schedule," the network said in a statement. Bounce TV just started airing reruns of the show in 2016.
Since going off the air in 1992, The Cosby Show has long enjoyed syndication on a large number of networks around the world. When allegations of sexual assault against the actor started to gain more traction in 2014, networks like BET Centric, TV Land, and Aspire pulled the show from their lineups. Bounce TV has also taken a similar step in the past, having previously run episodes of his later sitcom Cosby, but pulled the episodes when more allegations started to come to the forefront. Currently, the show is still available to be streamed on Amazon but as the days and weeks pass, it's likely to be removed from many more networks.
A Pennsylvania jury found Cosby guilty on all three counts of sexual assault in his retrial. In 2017, his case had to be declared a mistrial after the jury was deadlocked.
