Network has pulled re-runs of the classic American sitcom

Following the most recent update in the Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal, Centric has become the latest network to pull re-runs of "The Cosby Show."


Beginning Wednesday, the network cut the episodes from its schedule indefinitely. The action follows behind news of Cosby's 2005 testimony in which he admitted to drugging women to have sex. 


The court documents had previously been sealed, but were later obtained by The Associated Press in light of the recent allegations against the 77-year-old comedian.

Bounce TV has also pulled its airings of "Cosby," which aired on CBS from 1996 to 2000. The show starred Cosby, Rashad, Madeline Kahn, Jurnee Smollett and others.
