More Cosby shows canceled, tonight’s show is on

NEW YORK (AP) — Bill Cosby’s shows at casinos in Las Vegas and Arizona have been canceled as more women come forward alleging he sexually assaulted them many years ago.

Officials at the Treasure Island hotel-casino on the Las Vegas strip said they’ve mutually agreed with the comedian to cancel his Nov. 28 performance.

No reason was given by the Diamond Desert casino in Tucson, Arizona, for canceling his Feb. 15 show.

Cosby still apparently plans to bring his comedy to a sold-out theater in Melbourne, Florida, tonight. At least 34 other shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

The allegations from a growing number of women have prompted the cancellation of interviews and much-anticipated projects on NBC and Netflix. And reruns of “The Cosby Show” have been pulled off the air.

Cosby made no mention of the controversy last night at a benefit show for a women’s service organization in the Bahamas.

In the past week, numerous allegations of sexual abuse by Cosby from a number of women have led to canceled interviews and NBC and Netflix projects. “The Cosby Show” also was pulled off the air on TV Land.
