Trivia

Originally Telma Hopkins was cast as Ruth, but Bill Cosby gave the role to Phylicia Rashad. Some believe it was in hopes of recapturing the magic The Cosby Show (1984) had, but it was because Hopkins didn't react well to Cosby's tendency to ad-lib. See more »

This is a great show, really not of it's time. While most modern sitcoms base a large amount of their humor on sex, this comedy is the kind that you could allow your youngest children to watch, and is still hysterical. Bill Cosby has always been a comic genius, and he continues to be just that on Cosby. Doug E. Doug, an underrated performer, is also a great addition to this show, and looks like he is having the time of his life in every scene that he performs with Cosby. Cosby had a solid run, but after 4 seasons, ended too soon. In another time, this dying breed of comedy may have been more appreciated.
