Bill Cosby Plans to Return with a New Family Sitcom

One of the most legendary sitcom parents to ever grace television is now thinking about recreating a concept he admires the most.

At 76-years-old, Bill Cosby is working on yet another family comedy. If Cosby doesn’t know anything else, there’s one thing he knows for sure: good parenting.

Aside from his renowned presence in the comedy industry, Cosby is also a philanthropist and “…an outspoken social activist who occasionally makes headlines with his sharp criticism of the youth culture among African-Americans.” Cosby’s motives are concentrated on challenging black parents and community leaders to instill positive qualities in the youth.

Cosby has his doctorates in education and advocates for strong parenting. His hit show, “The Cosby Show”, has always displayed this passion.

After an eight-year time-slot of “The Cosby Show”, syndicated reruns on TV Land are still a hit of today. The show has always held so much positive credibility because of the lessons it conveys.

In a report by Yahoo TV, Cosby referred to what the public would like to see next.

“They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby, and that will be a series, I assume, that we could get enough people week after week after week to tune in to, to come along with us,” he said.

On Thursday Nov. 14, Cosby visited Greater Falls, Mont. for a show. Prior to the show, he was presented with a welcome gift instigated by Great Falls Advertising Federation. Blackfeet Tribal Chief, Earl Old Person, gave Cosby a Pendleton blanket and a symbolic Indian name,  “Brings Laughter”.

Interestingly enough, Cosby will televise his first comedy concert special in 30 years. “Bill Cosby: Far From Finished” will air Nov. 23 on Comedy Central.

    Look it up on the Internet…This man, Bill Cosby, drugged and sexually assaulted at least 12 women, including the young daughter of a close family friend, this was reported by People magazine in 2006. He is NOT the parts he ACTS on TV, he is garbage and NO media group should do business with him NOW should speak out and he should be boycotted

    He gets in front of majority of white students to put down African Americans Males as though they were not abandoned by African American Dads. So you act as though there are no White American Children who may be struggling, making bad decisions just show how ridiculous He (cosby)thinks. He does this to kiss up to White America yet behind closed doors these things could be true WOW!

    I for one am looking forward to his new show and comedy special. Bill Cosby has had harsh things to say about the African American community but a lot of those things needed to be said. As a community we as African Americans have lost our way. You speak of getting in front of white students and putting down African American Males, but what is the difference of putting them down in front of black Americans? As African Americans if we spent as much time trying to empower our communities instead of attacking the individuals whom speak out against it then I believe we would be much better off. Way to bring strong black families back to mainstream television Mr. Cosby.
