American comedian Bill Cosby has been banished by a number of US TV stations as allegations of sex abuse continue to mount.

The vile sex scandal enveloping the once-beloved Cosby led NBC to scrap a planned sitcom with the comedian who transformed its Thursday night schedule into an '80s ratings powerhouse.

The shocking announcement came after Netflix that it was getting out of the Cosby business, too.

And it was followed by word from the TV Land channel - home to vintage reruns - that it had suspended airing of 'The Cosby Show', with the sweater-wearing star as Huxtable family patriarch Cliff.
