Bill Cosby wasn't yet 50 when he performed in his last televised standup comedy special, "Bill Cosby: Himself." Thirty years later, the 76-year-old Emmy and Golden Globe winner has even more personal stories to share in "Far From Finished," the new Comedy Central special that marks his first TV special in three decades. When the funnyman chatted with Yahoo TV earlier this month, he shared the exciting news that he's planning a return to TV land (and maybe TV Land?) with a fresh family comedy. In part two of our chat, he shares the reason he chose the seemingly unlikely home of Comedy Central for his new performance, whether or not we can expect a "Cosby Show" reunion for the series' 30th anniversary next year, and the very funny reason his special is called "Far From Finished."
You touch on it in "Far From Finished," but why Comedy Central for this special?

It starred dozens of future superstars (including Emmy and Oscar winners), ran for four seasons on ABC, and landed an episode on TV Guide's list of the 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time … can you name that TV show?
It's "Naked City," the police drama filmed on location in New York City, and inspired by the 1948 Oscar-winning movie of the same name. The series aired on ABC from 1958 through 1963, and we've learned exclusively that all 138 episodes — 29 discs — will be released on November 5 in Image Entertainment's "Naked City: The Complete Series Box Set."
"Naked City" revolved around the work of the NYPD detectives at the city's 65th precinct, but the show's anthology-ish format and great writing drew a lineup of top guest stars who played both victims and criminals.
