A video from inside the courthouse showed women running out and weeping after comedian Bill Cosby was found guilty in his sexual assault trial on Thursday afternoon.

"Effective immediately, Bounce is removing The Cosby Show from our schedule", said the Atlanta-based network in a statement obtained by EW.

Cosby, 80, best known as the lovable father from the 1980s TV hit "The Cosby Show", faces up to 10 years in prison for each of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, 45, following a three-week trial at the Montgomery County courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Wesleyan University would become the second university in CT to revoke an honorary degree for Cosby, a once lauded comedian and public figure who has faced numerous accusations of sexual assault in recent years.

"He doesn't have a plane, you asshole!" In a weird turn of events, Cosby then stood up and began comically barking like a dog. Cosby yelled, according to multiple reporters who attended the trial.

Constand is one of about 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault. The onslaught all but destroyed his career and his good-guy image as wisdom-dispensing, sweater-wearing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show".

The prosecution case was bolstered by the five additional accusers who were allowed to testify, each saying they, too, were drugged and violated. His lawyer called Constand a "con artist" who leveled false accusations against Cosby so she could sue him.

It was Cosby's reputation as a public moralist that prompted a federal judge, acting on a request from The Associated Press, to unseal portions of the deposition.

The star witness for the defense was Marguerite Jackson, Temple employee who testified that Constand once spoke of setting up a prominent person and suing. Four of them, including model Janice Dickinson, said they were also sexually assaulted.
