UPDATE: Turns out that, despite the very firm message of his video, "The Cosby Show" IS on Hulu. The reps for the video streaming site reached out to The Huffington Post to point out that "The Cosby Show" can be seen in its entirety on Hulu Plus, and select episodes can be seen on regular, free Hulu. Cosby, it seems, was uninformed of his shows availability, and has taken the video down. Which is a shame, because it was awesome to watch.
With "The Cosby Show," Bill Cosby created one of the most important sitcoms in TV history. Running from 1984 to 1992, it spent five straight years as the number one Nielsen rated show on television, with upwards of 30 million people watching his Huxtable family each week on NBC.
It's a cultural treasure, but just about 20 years since it went off the air, it can be a bit hard to find. But Bill giveth, and he giveth some more, and thanks to that generous spirit, he's posted this new video on YouTube to help old fans and curious new viewers find "The Cosby Show" online.
Hint: it's on Netflix, not Hulu.
