“..The Cosby/Wussler management group has plotted “a specific strategic plan,”designed to “dramatically enhance profitability right away, re-establish affiliate relations, and put the network back in the hands of TV professionals,” explained one source. Brandon Tartikoff, initially contacted last fall by Cosby, was formally asked to join the team by a Wall Street intermediary during the second week of June. Tartikoff declined both times. Cosby is, however, continuing his search for other members of a proposed triumvirate to run NBC. He himself would continue to perform, but would also put his philosophical imprint on all programming…
original payment of $6.3 billion for the network and parent RCA, dreads a substantial write-down in the event of a sale. So they are suggesting, sources say, that the deal include some kind of “revenue stream” to G.E. over several years. Clearly, Welch wants more than the network is worth. And it’s worth less since those “G.E. weasels” (as Letterman calls them) have taken over. Cheers and Dave himself are history; aging hits are propping up NBC’s prime time, while the hot new shows are turning up elsewhere. ABC has replaced NBC as the family-friendly network, and even NBC News suffered because of deep cutbacks and the Dateline NBC—rigged G.M.-truck scandal. And Welch may be loath to delve into high-tech interactive television or expand further into cable until the network gets back on track…”

‘Cosby’ actor speaks out after being job-shamed online
Geoffrey Owens Says Lost ‘Cosby Show’ Residuals a Factor in His Trader Joe’s Job The Wrap Itay Hod,The Wrap Thu, Sep 6 6:27 PM CDT yahoo.com
‘Former “Cosby Show” star Geoffrey Owens says he took a job bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s in part because Bill Cosby’s abuse scandal cut into the income Owens received from “Cosby Show” residuals….
Since “The Cosby Show” went off the air in 1992, Owens has acted on shows like “Blue Bloods,” “The Blacklist” and “The Affair.” But money became tight when networks began yanking “The Cosby Show” reruns from the air following dozens of rape accusations against Cosby…..
“The Cosby Show” reruns had been a staple on cable television. But after dozens of women accused Cosby of drugging, raping, coercing or sexually assaulting them, networks began pulling the show’s reruns from their air. TV Land dropped reruns of the series in November 2014. Cable channels Bounce TV and Centric followed suit. The absence of “The Cosby Show” has meant fewer residual checks for the show’s cast.
“The fact is, yeah, there was a certain amount of money that stopped coming in and that made a difference,” Owens said.
Owens, best known for playing the Huxtables’ son-in-law Elvin Tibideaux on the hit ’80s sitcom, was thrust into the limelight over the weekend after a woman photographed him bagging groceries at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s. The photo led to a wider conversation about work ethic, and job-shaming.
..His hope now is that the conversation he helped spark continues, even if his grocery bagging days are over. Owens quit his job because of the recent attention. After the photos went viral, filmmaker Tyler Perry offered him a job on an OWN drama, which Owens accepted.
It was a Hollywood ending even Owens couldn’t have anticipated.
“It was really generous of him to do that and to do that so publicly,” Owens said of Perry. “It was very bold and courageous and generous of him.”
Cosby, who has denied any wrongdoing, was convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home 14 years ago.”
