This is what greeted me when I went out for my walk this morning -

TAKING A SPIN (OFF)
The Cosby Show was a surprise hit for NBC in 1984 and is even credited with lifting the network from third to first place. Show star/ creator Bill Cosby had free rein at the network, and in 1985 he produced an episode of his show to serve as a pilot to star one of his friends, singer Tony Orlando, for whom he’d opened concerts in the 1970s. On that episode, the Huxtable family volunteered at an inner-city community center run by Orlando’s character. Despite Cosby’s pull, the pilot was never made into a series (to be called Mr. Quiet) because, according to Orlando, his own performance “stunk.”
