As Bill Cosby's sexual assault scandal continues to unfold and his legacy crumbles to the ground, we're left to answer one burning question: Should "The Cosby Show" go down with the star's sinking ship?

Actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner says 'no.'

In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Warner said he feels "The Cosby Show" "deserves to return to television." Following a number of sexual assault allegations against Cosby, the series was pulled by several networks, including Centric.

"The legacy could never really be tarnished, because there are generations of young people who went to college and became doctors and lawyers because of 'The Cosby Show' and 'A Different World,'" Warner said.


"[...] There are so many young people who have gotten married and had families and are loving parents who communicate well with their kids because of that show. So all of the good that show has done that can never be reversed -- that can never be taken away."

Cosby was charged with sexual assault on Dec. 30 stemming from an alleged 2004 incident. His arraignment followed behind allegations from more than 50 women, several lawsuits and heavy criticism from the general public, making it hard for audiences to separate the man from his beloved character.

So the question still stands: Should "The Cosby Show" return to television? Weigh in below with our #CentricPoll.
