The Bounce television network says it is pulling its reruns of Bill Cosby’s 1990s-era CBS sitcom from the air immediately.

The network is geared toward black viewers. It had aired back-to-back episodes of “Cosby” each weekday at 5 p.m. The sitcom originally aired on CBS from 1996 to 2000.

Bounce’s decision Tuesday comes less than 24 hours after The Associated Press reported on court documents that showed the comedian admitted obtaining quaaludes to give to young women before having sex.

Other Cosby-related projects ended late last fall when women came forward with allegations that Cosby had assaulted them.
