A 'Cosby Show' Reunion
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It was a "Cosby Show" reunion on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" Friday when Bill Cosby and Tempestt Bledsoe, who played Vanessa Huxtable on the series, sat down on Fallon's couch. The late night host explained that the "Cosby Show" reunion was a happy coincidence since both guests happened to be booked on the same night. "This is truly surreal for me," Bledsoe said about sitting next to her TV dad after a clip from her show "Guys with Kids" played that featured her talking about sex. Fallon asked Cosby if it's fun to watch his TV daughter grow up and he replied emphatically, "No!" "When she turns out to be stunning, then you have problems," he explained. Bledsoe said the two get together often, but Cosby told her not to lie and joked, "Sometimes my checks are late and that's when I see Tempestt." The entire cast of "The Cosby Show" reunited in 2009 on the set of "Today," 25 years after the series premiered. "The Cosby Show," which ran from 1984 to 1992, followed th ...

Seeking A Comeback, NBC Bets Heavily On Comedy
Lex 18 - almost 5 years
NEW YORK (AP) - Hoping to lure viewers with laughs, struggling NBC is calling on old friend Matthew Perry to lend a hand. The TV network unveiled a fall schedule on Sunday that has 10 sitcoms, double the number of dramas it will air. Comedy is being added to two nights, Tuesday and Friday. All the low-rated but critically-acclaimed Thursday comedies earned renewals, although "Community" will move to Fridays. Four of the comedies are new, including "Go On," starring former "Friends" actor Perry as a fast-talking, sarcastic sportscaster who loses his wife in a car accident. "It is heavy on comedy," said Robert Greenblatt, NBC entertainment president. "It was a conscious decision we made ... at the beginning of the development season. The audience is really open to comedy right now." NBC is finding a new generation of fans discovering Perry's Chandler character through "Friends" reruns, and that contributed to "Go On" having broad appeal in audience testing, Greenblatt said. NBC gav ...
