  1. NBC, Netflix Nix Bill Cosby Programs

    The comedian’s comeback tour is dead on arrival. This week, the network dropped a sitcom deal with the actor, and the streaming service indefinitely postponed a stand-up comedy special called Bill Cosby 77. The cancelations come days after TV host Janice Dickinson added her name to a list of women stretching back decades who claim that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them. Not helping his cause is a resurfaced comedy bit in which he mentions drugging women with Spanish fly. There’s no sign that the legacy-destroying allegations will stop anytime soon.
