'The Cosby Show' has become 'weird' to watch

'Homeland' casts a surprising role

“The Cosby Show” has become “weird” to watch
“Weird,” says James Poniewozik, “in a way that’s hard to shake.” That’s because Cosby became so intertwined with Cliff Huxtable that it’s hard to separate the two in the wake of the rape allegations. “It seems hard to hear what we’ve been hearing and not feel anything different when watching Cliff Huxtable making faces and dispensing wisdom,” says Poniewozik. "'Innocent until proven guilty’ is a standard for the courts, for good reason. But it’s not a standard for life. If what you know or hear about an artist affects the way you see their work, you can no more will yourself to feel otherwise than you can force yourself not to blink.” PLUS: Cosby is NOT Cliff Huxtable, Cosby is likely earning very little from “Cosby Show” reruns, a “Cosby Show” fan feels a sense of guilt watching the show now, and Cosby spoke Friday about the allegations: "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos."
