NEW YORK— TV Land says it will stop airing reruns of “The Cosby Show,” while NBC has scrapped plans for a new Bill Cosby sitcom a day after another woman came forward claiming that the once-beloved comic had sexually assaulted her.
The move follows NBC’s decision to scrap a Cosby sitcom that was under development, and yesterday’s announcement from Netflix that it was postponing the Nov. 27 premiere of a new Cosby standup comedy special.
Actress Janice Dickinson became the third woman in recent weeks to allege she’d been assaulted by Cosby when she told “Entertainment Tonight” Tuesday that she was sexually assaulted by the comic in 1982. Cosby’s lawyer said Dickinson’s charges are “false and outlandish.”
