Over a year after pulling “The Cosby Show” reruns off the air, in the wake of news surrounding Bill Cosby’s rape allegations, Bounce TV has announced that it has decided to end its ban reruns of the series, starting next month.
The announcement was made via the Bounce TV Twitter account (See below):

I wasn’t aware that audiences were demanding a return of the comedy series. I assume there’ll be some backlash…
“The Cosby Show” was also banned by BET, Centric and TV Land. No word on whether they will follow Bounce TV’s lead.
Reruns of the classic sitcom will begin airing on Dec. 19 on Bounce TV.
