After The Bill Cosby Show left the air, he returned to his education, actively pursuing an advanced degree in education from the University of Massachusetts.
Much of the material from the pilot and first season of The Cosby Show was taken from his then popular video Bill Cosby: Himself, released in 1983.

In 1972, he was back in prime time with a variety series, The New Bill Cosby Show, but this time he met with poor ratings, and the show lasted only a season.
