Soon after his great success as Dr Huxtable on The Cosby Show (which ran for 197 episodes from 1984-1992) but long before his legal troubles (and sexual assault allegations by over thirty women spanning as many years), Bill Cosby had another TV show entitled "Cosby" that was filmed in NYC and ran from 1995 till early 2000 for a total of 95 episodes.

The show had more than a familiar feel about it, as it looked very much like The Cosby Show, but it was different in a few ways. The show was shot in NYC, as opposed to the original The Cosby Show which was shot in Los Angeles. The show was produced and aired on NBC for the whole of its run as opposed to the original on CBS. The show taping was convenient for Cosby, who lives in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, Cosby would get on his plane at the Springfield airport in Massachusetts and fly into La guardia airport in Queens to shoot the show a couple of times a week.

The show plot involved Bill Cosby, who plays Hilton Lucas, who was forced to retire by his employer Lockheed Martin when he was only sixty years old. His wife has trouble with him always being at home with nothing to do and Lucas also does not know what to do with himself other than riff off others in his household. The show did not feel original in any way, almost felt like a bad version of the original Cosby Show, especially given that original Cosby show co-stars also appeared on the show.
