As rape allegations continue to surface against onetime NBC “Must-See TV” frontman Bill Cosby, the network has decided not to get back into business with the veteran comedian.
USA Today reports that NBC is scrapping plans to do a new family sitcom with Cosby. The move comes after Netflix announced it was abandoning a planned Cosby special, as we reported earlier today.

The album was released in 1969, the same year that publicist Joan Tarshis alleges she was drugged and assaulted by Cosby.
