Bill Cosby’s TV Legacy Marred by Rape Allegations

Hosted by

It’s been more than two decades since The Cosby Show went off the air. But for younger generations who didn’t grow up with Cliff, Theo, and the whole Cosby gang, they may only know Bill Cosby for one thing: the rape allegations that have been leveled against him. The accusations could impact the comedian’s plans to launch a new show. We discuss that and more in our weekly television roundup.
