This is gonna be a must-see!

The Carmichael Show isn't the most well-known comedy on television, but that might all change after the NBC sitcom airs a rather controversial episode about Bill Cosby this Spring.

The comedy icon's fall from grace was one of the most unexpected scandals of 2015, but we're hoping that Jerrod Carmichael's take on the sexual assault claims is more than just funny; we want it to start a conversation.

Luckily, the plot for the episode sounds pretty spot on with how we felt upon hearing about Bill's accusers — after the accusations come out, a debate arises within the fictional family about whether or not to use their tickets for an upcoming Cosby show.

Jerrod spoke to Entertainment Weekly about tackling yet another scandalous topic, saying:

Bill Cosby Is Suing Beverly Johnson For Defamation!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersBill CosbyControversy

Bill is suing another accuser.

Bill Cosby has recently turned the tables on some of his accusers and decided to sue them for defamation.

Now, he's adding another name to his list of legal targets.

The scandalized star has filed a lawsuit against Beverly Johnson regarding her claims that she was drugged by the actor.

For those of you who don't remember, the 63-year-old opened up to Vanity Fair last year, claiming the Cosby Show lead had invited her over for dinner and spiked her cappuccino during an audition at his home for a part on his popular program.

Since then, the actress shared her story on national television and talk shows. But Bill says in legal docs that she is making false accusations in an attempt to become relevant again.

In the court papers, the 78-year-old says he had never dined alone with Beverly, like she had alleged. He wrote that the only time he and his accuser shared a meal was when they were also with his wife.

Lisa still hasn't spoken directly about the scandal.

Last year, a Twitter user pretending to be Lisa Bonet posted a cryptic tweet bashing Bill Cosby. Her manager was quick to point out that the actress hasn't spoken on the matter, and that she doesn't have any social media accounts.

Now, the beauty still hasn't spoken directly about the controversy, but her sentiments on the subject are being shared my a much more trustworthy source — her daughter.

The Cosby Show Producer Opens Up Amidst The Bill Cosby Rape Allegations

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersSad SadSexBill CosbyControversy

Bill Cosby's former producer speaks out about separating 'The Cosby Show' from the controversy.

With allegations mounting against Bill Cosby, his former producer is hoping The Cosby Show's reputation won't crumble like that of its star.

Tom Werner is speaking out about the scandal surrounding the 78-year-old, who is accused of sexually assaulting — and sometimes drugging — over 40 women throughout the course of his career.

While the producer didn't want to comment on the comedian specifically, he did want to address what this could mean for the popular program.

Tom hopes that, in spite of the controversy surrounding its titular actor, The Cosby Show is still perceived with positivity, saying:

"The legacy of the show is obviously very important to me, because the show was a groundbreaking show and it portrayed a middle-class African American family in a very positive way. It had a lot of stories that resonated with families because people watched it together. Obviously it's a challenging time for Bill Cosby and a challenging time for the show, but I'm hoping that people will still be able to watch the show and identify with the Huxtables."

This is one of the first times the TV exec has spoken on the subject. He also released a statement about Bill back in November.

Former Cosby Show Actor Reveals Why He KNOWS Bill Cosby Is Guilty

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBill Cosby

Bill Cosby's loyal supporters are dropping like flies!

After Whoopi Goldberg recanted her support for the comedian on Tuesday's episode of The View, a former Cosby Show actor, Joseph C. Phillips, also questioned his allegiance to the 73-year-old.

[ Video: Judd Apatow Goes On The Today Show To Talk About Trainwreck And Bill! ]

In a fairly long blog post, Joseph recalls his love for the shamed actor before setting the grounds for his guilt.

Obviously, Cosby was a huge mentor to Phillips during his stint on the show between 1985-1991 playing the character of Lt. Martin Kendall — and subsequently, the comedian's betrayal is still a hard pill to swallow.

It was only until Joe ran into a former female co-worker that he changed his mind about Bill's character.

The actor explained:

"I was particularly shaken the afternoon I bumped into an old friend while shopping. The controversy was at its height. The story of Bill was all over the press. I hadn't seen this woman for many years…As we spoke, I recalled that Bill had been her mentor (play father, teacher…something. I couldn't quite recall what it was).

The question popped into my head. 'Hey, do you mind if I ask you something?' She looked at me and then asked, 'Is it going to make me cry?' I was a bit taken aback. 'Well,' I stammered. 'I hope it doesn't make you cry.' She smiled. 'Go ahead and ask your question.' 'Back in the day,' I started. 'I remember that you knew Bill – that he was like your mentor or something. Did he ever…' Before I finished the sentence, she began to cry."

So devastating. We bet it was extremely hard for JP to learn his former friend was a victim!

The actor added:

The comedienne's defense tactics were pretty solid. After playing a clip of The Cosby Show, she handed out pudding pops and Huxtable-esque sweaters to the jury!

The best part of the sketch was Schumer's closing argument, that we the people didn't deserve to be burdened by the guilt of watching any future Cosby Show reruns. She concluded:

"Ladies and gentlemen, at this point Bill Cosby probably can't get in any legal trouble. That's not what this is about. This is about us not punishing ourselves for loving great comedy."
