Show Summary

After being one of the ten-thousand people who were downsized at the airport, Hilton Lucas (Bill Cosby) is forced to retire and stay home with his wife Ruth (Phylicia Rashad) and his daughter Erica (T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh). Unfortunately for Hilton, Erica's friend Griffin Vesey (Doug E. Doug) is also staying with the family. At first, Ruth was not too thrilled of the idea of Hilton being home for the rest of his life, but eventually she got used to it. Ruth also owns her own coffee shop, along with long-time family friend Pauline Fox (Madeline Kahn). Witness the many hilarious moments and sometimes interesting situations on Cosby.

    Funny and sets the standard for family time and outside of the box scenes!
  • Premeiring in 1984 as M*A*S*H* was just saying goodbye, added another staple of late night television. It was based on a typical New York Family of seven, with mom who is a lawyer, and Dad who is a Doctor. Every week we laughed as a brlliant cast did.moreless

    The Cosby show was as funny as it was enjoyable to watch. Bill Cosby is one of the funniest men around. Taking his stand up routines and putting them onto the screen for all to laugh at and enjoy. Cosby and co-star Malcolm-Jamal Warner, (Theo Huxtable), were a classic match up as father and son. The cast was funny and brilliant. The Cosby Show topped the ratings as number 1 for four straight years in a row. Premiering in 1984 and running through 8 years until 1992, and it is still one of the funniest shows ever to hit primetime television.moreless
  • Great show!!

    I watched it from the beginning to the end! It's one of the best show i've ever watched!! Cosby - the head of the family is as always soooo funny. Not just his lines, but his expressions as well! And than his wife, and their relationship, children, grandchildren... Wonderful! I mean, being able to watch someone grows in front of your eyes and in such a nice show, it's a rare possibility! The show is very funny, and interesting, it can keep you in front of the TV all they if that could be possible.:) But, as always...everything has it's ending, so...i think it's going to pass a lot of years until we got something good and amusing as The Cosby show...moreless
