The Carmichael Show brilliantly takes on Bill Cosby
March 13th, 2016 under Bill Cosby, The Carmichael Show. [ Comments: 1 ]


Last year, The Carmichael Show was my favorite new show and it was one of the last ones to debut. Tonight at 9p on NBC, it is back for its second season and it is even better than it was last year.
Tonight, they take on Bill Cosby and show us every side of the issue. By the end of the episode you will understand why people are still going to see him and why others are not.
Before we get to the end, let’s start with the beginning. Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) decided to surprise his girlfriend Maxine (Amber Stevens West) with tickets to a comedy show; but when she finds out it is for Bill Cosby, she refuses to go because of the allegations. He still wants to see the show, so he asks his parents if they want to go. His mom (Loretta Devine) and dad (David Alan Grier) are all excited to go, until Maxine tries to convince her future mother-in-law not to go. They ask the question, how many women is it OK to allegedly rape before you turn on an idol.
Now, they are torn on what to do, so they ask for a neutral opinion from Jerrod’s ex-sister-in-law Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish). She has no idea what is going on with Bill Cosby, so they give her his Wikipedia page to read. Which makes things even more complicated.
Will anyone go to see Bill Cosby or will they all wind up going? You just have to tune in to find out.
The thing I absolutely adore about The Carmichael Show is they take on controversial issues, and show all sides of the story. They are less bias than the news these day and more informative. Plus, you are laughing with them and not at them like you are at news networks.
I can’t say enough good things about this sitcom, so I implore you to check out the best new comedy in a really really long time.

Bill Cosby charged with sexual assault
December 30th, 2015 under Arrested, Bill Cosby. [ Comments: none ]


It’s been over a year since many women have claimed that Bill Cosby drugged and raped them and yet there were no charges brought against the actor. That all changed today when Montgomery County, Pa’s district attorney’s office announced that they are charging him with a crime relating to a woman’s complaint filed against him. DA Kevin Steele said he was charged him with aggravated indecent assault relating to an incident that happened back in 2004. According to the PBS Newshour, “On the night in question, Cosby is alleged to have given the woman, who was associated with the Temple University women’s basketball program, wine and pills that rendered her unable to move, at which time he sexually assaulted her.”
The statute of limitation is 12 years there, so they just had a few months before time ran out.
The actor will be arraigned later today.
It will be interesting to see if he will be facing more charges from other districts, now that one of the district attorney’s charged him with the alleged crime.

UPDATE: Bill Cosby was arraigned today and bail was set at $1,000,000. He made bail and also turned over his passport as part of the arraignment. His next day in court is January 14th.

Family Guy goes there with The Cosby Show
November 16th, 2015 under Bill Cosby, Seth MacFarlane. [ Comments: none ]


Family Guy has been having a lot fun making fun of Bill Cosby since before the scandal and they’ve been having even more fun since it broke. Yesterday, they reworked the opening of The Cosby Show and had all the leading ladies passed out while he did his danced around in a colorful sweater. If only they brought Phylicia Rashād, Lisa Bonet and Tempestt Bledsoe into the mix, I would’ve been OK. But why did they have to add the late greats Bonnie Franklin and Bea Arthur? What did they do to deserve that? It’s not like they can defend themselves. Just like…

BTWF roles: Mark Hamill in The Bill Cosby Show
April 1st, 2015 under Before They Were Famous, Bill Cosby, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]


Before the force was with Mark Hamill in Star Wars, he needed it on The Bill Cosby Show. How cute was the 19 year old in that 1970 episode?

Jimmy Fallon rides Bill Cosby
March 27th, 2014 under Bill Cosby, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]


Bill Cosby was a guest on The Tonight Show, and Jimmy Fallon asked the legendary comedian to attempt to tightrope on the NBC late night show. Thankfully he just had to simulate it where a piece of tape on the floor. Cosby being Cosby went into a big to-do about it before actually stepping on to the rope. Then once he did, it was a really good thing that he wasn’t actually walking a tightrope.
Then once he obviously failed, the NBC late night host jumped on his back and rode Cosby for the rest of the way. I am not sure who is luckier to be alive Cosby or Fallon. Cause it looked like if Bill could kill Jimmy for imitating him, he would.
