We've missed having Tempestt Bledsoe in our living rooms since she played "The Cosby Show's" Vanessa Huxtable. We had her back temporarily in 2012 with NBC's short-lived "Guys With Kids," on which the actress played a working, no-nonsense mom like her former TV mother Clair Huxtable. NBC/Getty Images
Phylicia Rashad, who played mom Clair, teamed up with her on-screen hubby again for "Cosby" and guest-starred on "Touched by an Angel" and "Everybody Hates Chris."

Fox Show" to TNT's "Closer" spinoff, "Major Crimes." NBC/Getty Images
