BET, Bounce TV pull 'Cosby Show' reruns from air

BET announced it will pull "Cosby Show" reruns from the air. The network's assistant executive president of programming, Glenn Kornegay confirmed the decision.

The network did not confirm whether the programming change is permanent.

In the wake of the latest news surrounding comedian Bill Cosby's rape allegations, Bounce TV has also decided to immediately terminate reruns of the series.

Several women who accused Cosby of drugging and raping them are saying newly unsealed testimony by the comedian in a 2005 case corroborates their claims.

Cosby admitted to acquiring quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with, and giving the drug to several women, in testimony for a sexual-abuse case filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

In documents obtained by The Associated Press, Cosby said he obtained seven quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s. Constand's lawyer asked if he had kept the sedatives through the 1990s, after they were banned, but was frustrated by objections from Cosby's attorney.
