“The Cosby Show” is making its way back to traditional television. Its seems a brave broadcasting network has step up and took a chance by syndicating the legendary sitcom. Bounce TV is one of the first African- American broadcasting networks ever. Bounce TV understood how important “The Cosby Show” is to African American culture. Bounce believes in separating the art from ones personal life. This courageous decision will come with a lot of negativity from conservative media outlets and television networks. Bounce Tv made the announcement on Twitter, the reruns are scheduled to air on December 19, 2016 at 5:00pm (eastern time).
Personally I feel “The Cosby Show”shouldn’t have ever left the airwaves in the first place. Bill Cosby has had allegations of sexual assault against him but hasn’t been charged with any crime. White media outlets and televisions stations has tormented Cosby’s likeness and legacy. I’m glad an African-American broadcasting network was the first to understand how much the African- American culture needs this fine art. “The Cosby Show” has undeniably influence American culture and will continue thanks to Bounce T.V.
