Bill Cosby Loses Guest Spot on Letterman


Only a couple of weeks after Bill Cosby — whose allegations of sexual assault have resurfaced with a vengeance recently — was declined a guest spot on Queen Latifah’s daytime talk show, his rep is announcing that an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman has been cancelled, too.

Bill Cosby’s upcoming appearance on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” has been canceled amid a growing uproar over allegations that he sexually assaulted several women in past decades.

Cosby spokesman David Brokaw confirmed Friday night that Cosby would not appear next Wednesday as previously scheduled. He did not say why.

“Late Show” representative Kimberly Izzo-Emmet said, “We can’t comment on the guest booking process.” She said Regis Philbin would be the replacement guest.
