Bill Cosby’s thoughts on current TV

“I’m not thrilled with the deliberate onslaught of the public by the major networks in terms of the sitcoms. They still don’t get it about race. They still don’t get it about gender. Jokes are still about jerks and body parts and sex. The excuse is always the public wants stuff that raises the dopamine level.”
Bill Cosby

Cosby is the 2009 recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. This quote was on why he doesn’t watch television sitcoms. He also added, “Our youth [should be able to] find themselves being excited about things other than going straight for the genitalia.”   [usatoday.com, 10/22/09]

Good word!
