CBS anchor Katie Couric has proposed creating a Muslim version of the hit 80′s family sitcom, The Cosby Show, in an effort to improve American attitudes about Islam.

The idea popped into Couric’s head while discussing the biggest news stories of 2010 on her show. After bringing up “the bigotry against Muslims in this country [the United States],” which she called “one of the most disturbing stories to surface this year,” comedian Mo Rocca said that he really did not know a lot about the religion.

“Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show,” Couric quipped, while wearing a Palin-esque pair of eyeglasses. “I know that sounds crazy, but The Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans.” For some reason, Couric made a point to look at and flash a fake smile to African-American blogger Sheryl Huggins-Salomon while saying “African-American.”
