When I was a little kid, Bill Cosby was someone who I (and many others) looked at as a person to aspire to be. He was the epitome of “good.” Looking back, I should have just stuck with Spider-Man and Han Solo—fictional characters have a way of not turning out to be alleged serial rapists—but this was the reality for many children of the ‘80s. I realize how stupid this sounds now. Human being are flawed (or much, much worse), but eight year olds don’t really think like that.

The 76 year-old Cosby will return to NBC decades after 'The Cosby Show' for a new original family sitcom, to both star in and produce.

Comedy legend Bill Cosby may not maintain much presence in the public eye anymore, beyond the occasional Jimmy Fallon appearance, but it seems the 76-year-old comic is going back to work full time. The former 'Cosby Show' leader will return with a new Comedy Central stand-up special later this year, having not recorded new material for a special in 30 years.
