NBC reacts to Cosby rape allegations

Bill Cosby - GED

A major blow for Bill Cosby today as NBC announced it was dropping his deal for a TV comeback. Cosby was slated to return to TV in the fall of 2015 after an almost 20-year absence.  This marks the second time in 24 hours that Cosby has been hit with career blows. On late Tuesday afternoon, NetFlix announced it was postponing his Thanksgiving special. In addition, the recent interview with former supermodel Janice Dickinson for the news program ET may have had a significant impact in these circumstances.

There has been no statement yet from Bill Cosby or his lawyers regarding this latest development.
