Bill Cosby and Susan Boyle Fall In & Out of Love in a Matter of Minutes (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 2nd 2011 2:40PM
Bill Cosby and Susan Boyle had a whirlwind mock-romance for the ages on 'Today,' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) cycling through multiple stages of a relationship in a single-segment. In a several-minute affair that made Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage feel like forever, Boyle helped Cosby put on his jacket, he kissed her on the cheek and they started cuddling.

"And we'll be getting divorced during the commercial," Cosby joked, before Boyle quickly left and the camera cut back to him looking heartbroken and holding a single rose with a farewell note.

'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.

"Oh, please, with Donald Trump," said Cosby, making a face. "Take him home with you ... He's full of it."

Lopez Jokes About Poor Childhood, Thanks Bill Cosby (VIDEO)

George Lopez Thanks Bill Cosby on 'Lopez Tonight'When Bill Cosby visited 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), the subject of the host's humble beginnings came up. At Thanksgiving, they would have 14 people in the home, but food for about three, Lopez said chuckling.

"They tried to tell me that a Cornish game hen was a turkey from far away -- [that] when they took a picture of [the turkey] the camera was close, that's why it looked bigger." So the family gathered around the hen. "There wasn't even stuffing -- it was a wet roll inside," he joked.

"Why are you laughing? This is sad, man!" Cosby said. But the comedian noted, "You found humor somewhere." Lopez replied, "I turned it into comedy -- thanks to you and your influence on me."

Bill Cosby vs. Atticus Shaffer on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Bill Cosby vs. Atticus Shaffer on 'The Tonight Show'Kids can say the darndest things. At least, they do when Bill Cosby is around. On the new 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), the legendary comedian was the guest -- but he wasn't even the main event! Instead, the 73-year-old actor and comic was just the "warm-up act" ... for 12-year-old Atticus Shaffer.

Shaffer, star of the sitcom 'The Middle,' is at least very respectful to his elders. Atticus joked that after learning he would be appearing with "the Cos," he suffered a mild stroke. "When I got the phone call ... I heard I was going to be on 'Jay Leno'; I picked myself up off the floor from fainting. ... Then they said that I'm going to be on after Bill Cosby -- then my heart skipped a beat."

Aw, how polite! But would this be a sufficient level of tribute for Mr. Cosby? Apparently not. The comedian gestured at Atticus while furrowing his brow: " ... Is that all?" What? You want more than Atticus having a heart attack?

A Son, Mom, and Dad Are ALL Arrested for Drunk Driving; 'Chelsea Lately' Discusses (VIDEO)

A Son, Mom and Dad Are ALL Arrested for Drunk Driving; 'Chelsea Lately' DiscussesSometimes, trouble just runs in the family. The new 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) takes on the important topic of an entire family that was arrested for drunk driving, all on the same night! First, the son was stopped at a police checkpoint for being drunk and stoned. The mom drove to the police station to rescue him ... but she showed up drunk! That's not good.

The mother was arrested, but that wasn't the end of the trouble for the family. Two hours later, her 45-year-old husband drove through the same police checkpoint, and was also arrested -- because he was also operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Yikes! Well, at least the mom, dad, and kid have a lot to bond over now.

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 2nd 2010 10:45PM
Bill CosbyBill Cosby is the latest victim of an Internet-wide death hoax. Despite "Bill Cosby died" being the number one trending topic on Twitter this evening, the beloved comedian confirmed on his account that he is very much alive and well.

"Again, I'm rebuttaling rumors about my demise. But, I'm confirming I have an app - http://bit.ly/BillCosbyApp :)," tweeted the 73-year-old actor.

He later wrote, "Emotional friends have called about this misinformation. To the people behind the foolishness, I'm not sure you see how upsetting this is."

George Lopez Admits Stealing from Bill Cosby (VIDEO)

George Lopez Admits Stealing from Bill CosbyGeorge Lopez owes Bill Cosby a cigar, he admitted when the veteran comedian visited 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS). He took one from Cosby many years ago -- and he may have taken some of Cosby's comic mojo, too.

After performing at the Paso Robles fair in California, Cosby left a half-smoked cigar in his trailer. Apparently, Lopez cut off the end and smoked the rest.

"I've never told anybody that because I was hoping that something you inhaled through your cigar, I would inhale through your cigar," Lopez explained. "I walked around [the event] trying to be you in Spanish."

But the story doesn't end there. Cosby said he went back to retrieve it...

Bill Cosby Does Standup on 'Tonight Show' -- Sitting Down (VIDEO)

Bill Cosby on 'The Tonight Show'Getting older may have its annoyances, but it creates a new form of comedy, Bill Cosby explained on a visit to 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). The comedian did some standup -- sitting down.

In his experience, what would normally be a two-second greeting exchanged over the phone turned into several minutes of miscommunication, with his friend Johnny eventually saying, "What's your problem?!" Cosby's exasperated wife then got involved.

Seven Possible Recasts for Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men'

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 7th 2010 9:03AM
Charlie Sheen, 'Two and a Half Men'While nobody wants to see him go, of course, in practical terms we must consider the possibility of a 'Two and a Half Men' without Charlie Harper. While the show has been renewed through the next two seasons, Charlie Sheen has expressed interest in leaving; his contract is up this season. Even if it's just a negotiating ploy, CBS is probably considering how the show could continue without him.

Tiger Woods was immediately interested in doing the show after he'd heard how many different women Charlie has slept with, but he backed out when he found out it was all acting on the show. Luckily, the PGA welcomed him back with open arms mere moments before the entire sport collapsed.

Conan O'Brien was briefly considered, but NBC said no before they even heard what it was. When advised that he probably wouldn't be needed until next September, when the network's hold over O'Brien expires anyway, they relented. "At least," no one from NBC actually said, "...it would keep him the hell away from 11:30."

Robert Culp on 'I Spy': Three Memorable Moments

by David Hofstede, posted Mar 25th 2010 9:00AM
Robert CulpBill Cosby received most of the accolades, including an Emmy Award, for his groundbreaking work on the action/espionage series 'I Spy.' However, it was co-star Robert Culp, who played Kelly Robinson opposite Cosby's Alexander Scott, who was the series' true MVP. Not only did Culp hold his own in the comedic banter that helped make 'I Spy' a hit that ran for three seasons, he also wrote several episodes that rank among the series' finest shows.

The dashing Culp, who also appeared in classic episodes of 'The Outer Limits' and 'Columbo,' and costarred in 'Greatest American Hero,' died yesterday at the age of 79. For those wishing to remember him in his signature role, here are three 'I Spy' episodes, also scripted by Culp, to get you started.

'I Spy' star Robert Culp dead at 79

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 24th 2010 6:25PM
I SpyOne half of the 'I Spy' team is gone: Robert Culp has died near his home in Hollywood at the age of 79. What's even more troubling is the way he died. Culp apparently fell and hit his head while out for a walk and was found by a jogger. He later died at a hospital.

Although Culp is probably best known for his work with Bill Cosby on 'I Spy,' he could be equally well-known to modern audiences for his work on two other classic shows. He played Agent Bill Maxwell on 'The Greatest American Hero' and also played Debra's dad on 'Everybody Loves Raymond.'

He made appearances in tons of other TV shows too: 'Columbo' (he was the murderer four times), 'Murder, She Wrote,' 'Matlock,' 'Robot Chicken,' 'The Outer Limits,' 'Police Story,' 'Dr. Kildare,' 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E., 'Combat,' 'Disneyland,' 'The Rifleman,' 'Bonanza,' 'Golden Girls,' 'Wings,' and many more shows and movies.

Oh, 'I Spy' was a fantastic show. It was shot on location around the world, which is rather rare for a TV show. It's on tonight at 9 on Retro TV. After the jump, the opening (you can also watch the show for free at SlashControl).

Bill Cosby awarded Mark Twain Prize

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 27th 2009 9:03AM
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.
