The Atlanta-based network Bounce TV has decided to scrub all repeat episodes from its schedule following Thursday’s court decision

“Effective immediately, Bounce is removing ‘The Cosby Show,’” the network said in a statement to multiple media outlets.

Cosby starred in the award-winning sitcom for eight seasons, with TV Guide calling it the “biggest hit” of the 1980s. The now-disgraced comedian was convicted of sexual assault on Thursday.

Bounce began running reruns of “The Cosby Show” in early 2015 after acquiring it in a multi-network deal along with several other sitcoms, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The rights to Cosby’s spinoff, “A Different World,” were also obtained — and the show still airs on the network today.

Bounce had scrapped episodes of the comedian’s 1990s CBS series, “Cosby,” in 2015 when the sexual assault allegations against him first surfaced.

When it comes to Bill Cosby I will not assume all these women are telling the truth because I’m a woman. I dont automatically support him because I’m black. I have no idea what he actually did or didn’t do. None of us do. But I’m sitting here watching “A Different World” (Cosby- Executive Director) on Netflix thinking how powerful each episode was. And knowing the same to be true of the Cosby show. Episodes that taught us about history and current issues in the black community, every episode showing intelligent, educated, professional black people dealing with daily life, featuring the black entertainers of the day, shouting out HBCU’s on sweatshirts giving youth something to aspire to. I don’t know about you but I wanted to be like every character. Who’s doing that for us today? Nothing even comes close. I’m humiliated by today’s content to the point that I only watch a handful of tv shows and have completely boycotted reality shows. As if we needed any help, there is little to contradict the perception that we’re all loud, ghetto, ready to fight and extremely materialistic. I will accept the verdict and it turns out that Cosby is a scumbag. It will not erase, negate or ruin what he did for my childhood or an entire generation of people like me.

The 37-year-old has faced a stressful past few months during her pregnancy; not only did her ex Ed Hartwell abruptly file for divorce, but he accused her of cheating—a claim she denies.

But despite the headline-making drama, the former “Cosby Show” actress has managed to keep things classy, offering up a single interview addressing the split and moving on.

And now it seems her ability to pull through her personal trails—and her baby’s role in helping her do that—have inspired her name choice for her baby girl.

“I was back and forth on if I wanted to share this or not, but I decided that I would because it is so hard for me to keep it in,” Keshia said during Friday’s episode of her Play.it podcast “Kandidly Keshia.”

“I’m so excited about her,” she went on to say. “Her name is… Ella Grace.”

But how exactly did her heartbreaking breakup help her settle on a name?

“I knew Ella was going to be my first baby girl’s first name,” she revealed. “Then in the midst of all of this is when she’s earned her middle name, Grace. When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us—she’s been my saving grace to get through it. It’s knowing that it’s not about me. Knowing that on days when I want to curl up in the bed, pull the covers over my head and cry until my eyes fall out, that is not an option because she feels everything I feel and right now, it is bigger than me—it’s about her. It is about her being ok.”

Ive always loved and admired Keshia. Glad she’s staying positive and keeping Ella Grace as her #1 priority.
