Re: Bill Cosby returning to NBC in new family comedy

Hmm. From the article: "There is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude." I'm not sure what he means by "party attitude." I can think of lots of sitcoms on the air right now that are currently have all of the qualities he is listing. Reading his further descriptions in the article of the type of show he wants to do, it basically sounds like an 80s sitcom, which may or may not appeal to today's audience. For the nostalgia factor, yes. But there's a reason that current shows have moved away from the image of the loving, forgiving, wholesome family...it doesn't exist. It's not realistic (I especially laughed at his comment that the show will have "children who respect the parenting").
