The Cosby Show

'Read Between the Lines' Puts Malcolm-Jamal Warner Back in a Family Sitcom (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 10th 2011 5:45PM
Malcolm-Jamal Warner grew up in one of TV's most iconic families in his role as Theo Huxtable on 'The Cosby Show.' Now, all these years later, after a cameo on 'Community' and a bevy of other projects, Warner is back to tackling the family sitcom. He stopped by 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, (9AM ET on Fox) to preview his new show 'Read Between the Lines.'

Warner doesn't shy away from the 'Cosby Show' comparisons, although he was careful to say that trying to recreate it would be foolish. But he did say the show was striving to capture that same "sense of universality, that sense of positive family values and family love, and a couple that's actually happily married."

Raven-Symone on 'Good Morning America'On her new show, 'State of Georgia,' Raven-Symone plays a woman from Georgia who moves to New York City to become a star. Of course, Raven-Symone has been a star since she was four-years-old, when she played Olivia on 'The Cosby Show.' Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Raven-Symone talked about the new show and some show-business advice she got from Bill Cosby.

Raven-Symone was thankful to have had Cosby, a legendary comedian and television icon, as a mentor from an early age. "He told me that this is a business, and you have to stay professional," she said. "No matter how much glitz and glamour or money that you can collect, it's all about, can people respect your business ethic."

She'll also be joined by a couple of TV veterans on 'State of Georgia': Loretta Devine ('Boston Public,' 'Grey's Anatomy') and Majandra Delfino ('Roswell'). A TV staple for most of her life, it's hard to believe that Raven-Symone is still only 25-years-old.

'The Cosby Show' Cast Reunites to Accept the TV Land Impact Award (VIDEO)

Bill Cosby and the cast of 'The Cosby Show' at '2011 TV Land Awards'It was appropriate, considering 'The Cosby Show' was the brain child of Bill Cosby, that the comedian was the only one who spoke when the cast was on stage to accept their Impact Award at the '2011 TV Land Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on TV Land). Cosby was charming and funny, lamenting that he had just watched all of his "children" drinking. Still, it would have been nice to hear from some of the other cast members.

The award was presented by Stevie Wonder, and Cosby spent a good chunk of his time riffing with the legendary musician, when we suspect fans of 'The Cosby Show' would have preferred him talk more about his inspiration for the show, how he feels the show influenced television, or even some classic Cosby grumbling about the world today.

Tonight's TV Land Awards will bring together the cast of 'The Cosby Show' for the first time in years.

When TV Squad caught up with Raven-Symoné a few weeks ago at the ABC Family upfronts, the now-25-year-old former 'Cosby Show' star said she was excited for the cast to receive the TV Land Impact Award.

"I loved working with Bill Cosby. And it's such an honor to end up on TV Land," Symoné said. "I mean, it's weird because I'm only 25 and on TV Land! But when I was little, I was only allowed to watch TV Land and the cooking network, so it's really cool."

Two decades after she started on the iconic series, the actress formerly known as little Olivia Kendall has a new show of her own. She'll return to TV with ABC Family's 'State of Georgia' (formerly known as 'The Great State of Georgia') in June.

Raven Symone shared details of her first kiss on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) today. According to the former 'Cosby Show' star, she forcibly took her first kiss from a fellow student in high school who flirted with her, but never made any other advances.

Symone said she decided one day to lock lips with her crush after growing weary of his nonstop flirting. "Before math class, I pulled him to the side of the hallway, gave him a kiss and said, 'Don't ever elude me again,'" she said.

Bill Cosby awarded Mark Twain Prize

Bill Cosby: HimselfOne of America's greatest TV icons has been officially recognized as one of its greatest humorists. Yes, he's still one of the greatest TV icons, but giving him another honor for his work in TV is like giving Jay Leno a free car.

Bill Cosby received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Monday at the Kennedy Center.

The event, set for broadcast on PBS on Nov. 4., featured presentations and words from comedy notables such as Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. It also featured a Cosby Show reunion of sorts with Phylicia Rashad and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. It's a good thing Dr. Huxtable didn't take his boy out of the world after all.

Happy 25th anniversary, Cosby Show

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 22nd 2009 10:29AM
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere episode of The Cosby Show. Here's the famous scene from the episode where Cliff explains to son Theo about the realities of living on your own and not going to college. This was an instant classic, because Cliff's reaction to Theo's speech about being a "regular person" wasn't expected, especially by an audience that had just clapped at what Theo had said.

Rocky Carroll doubling down on NCIS franchise

Leo G. Carroll did it in 1966. Lisa Bonet sort of did it in 1987. What am I talking about? Double duty. That is, playing the same role on two series which are running at the same time. There are probably quite a few other instances, but Leo was head man Mr. Waverly on both The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. for a year, and Lisa was Denise Huxtable in college (A Different World) and when she came home to visit the family in Brooklyn on The Cosby Show.

Now, Rocky Carroll will appear on both NCIS shows. Doing double duty makes perfect sense for the NCIS twosome, especially since they're going to be airing back to back on Tuesday, 8-10 P.M.

Fantasia and Rudy Huxtable getting reality shows ... Who's next?!

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 16th 2009 3:05PM
Keshia Knight PulliamDoes Gary Coleman have a reality show yet? At this point, it seems that everyone and their brother is getting a reality show. You knew the end was nigh when Kim Kardashian's entire family got a reality show. That's a family getting a show based on a big ass. And I mean that in more ways than one. Keshia Knight Pulliam, who's famous for being a cute little girl on The Cosby Show twenty years ago is getting her chance to shine. Now 30, Pulliam is set to "star" in a reality show for Oxygen about her fun, young life with her live-in boyfriend. Yawn, man I think I fell asleep typing that.

But that's not all! Fantasia Barrino is getting her own reality show on VH1 and it doesn't have anything to do with skanks or dating! Fantasia won American Idol way back in Season 3, had her own Lifetime movie and a successful book and musical accolades to spare. But she's been more out of the public limelight in recent years while she performed on Broadway in The Color Purple. But still, I think Taylor Hicks needs a reality show more than Fantasia.
