Bill Cosby Dropped by NBC as Netflix Weighs Options

Earlier today Netflix announced that it was postponing the scheduled release of a new Bill Cosby comedy special. Titled Bill Cosby 77, the special was supposed to hit Netflix on November 28.

“At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand-up comedy special Bill Cosby 77,” is all Netflix had to say.

Netflix seems to have a few options at this point. It can wait it out and see if any further developments emerge that could add some clarity to the situation. It could go ahead and air the thing – but open itself up to strong backlash.

Or it could just scrap the whole show – which at this point looks like the smartest route.
