"The Cosby Show" aired on NBC from 1984-92 and centered around the lives of Dr. Heathcliff (Cliff) Huxtable (Bill Cosby), an obstetrician, his wife Clair (Phylicia Rashad), a successful lawyer, and his family in New York's Brooklyn Heights. The comedy reflects the increasing ways in which families struggle to balance professional and personal lives and focuses on the efforts to raise five kids � Sondra (Sabrina LaBeauf), Denise (Lisa Bonet), Theo (Malcolm Jamal-Warner), Vanessa (Tempestt Bledsoe) and Rudy (Keshia Knight Pulliam) in a dual-career household. The show garnered five Emmy awards including "Outstanding Comedy Series" in 1985 and remained a top-five hit throughout its wildly successful run.
