CBS Threatens ABC With A Glass House Lawsuit!!

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

big brother glass house lawsuit

Oh shiiizz!!

Now that ABC is working on Glass House — a reality show super similar to Big BrotherCBS is calling BS!!

In Glass House, contestants are stuck in a house, filmed 24/7, and what do ya know - eventually voted off one by one!! Yeah, definitely sounds like Big Brother to us!!

CBS firmly declares:

In the strongest possible terms, we must admonish ABC and anyone involved in the development or production of Glass House that they will be acting at their own peril if they continue to proceed in this manner.

YIKES!!!

Sounds like they're taking it personally!!

Well… maybe they are… since EIGHTEEN former BB staffers are working on the new show.

Ooooh…. snap!

    Big Brother is as old and tired as its host (who only has the job due to her husband being in charge of the network). Chen's personality is flatter than her chest. Anything ABC can do to improve this format is great. There are tons of amazing race and survivor knock offs each year so I can't wait for glass house!

    I was thinking camel toe too. First Mariah Carey and her now her. Don't these women ever learn?

    Re: eicarr – Big Brother just came off of its highest rated season in over 5 years. In the past few years, it has brought us some of the most memorable houseguests yet, and what I think to be the best seasons of the series. It's nowhere near dead.

    People need to realize that this is not a rip off of Big Brother US, it's a rip off of the international versions of Big Brother. In the US version of Big Brother, competition, power, and most of all strategy are what it takes to win, whereas in the international versions and The Glass House, it's just people lying around for the summer remembering to smile for the cameras every once in a while to get America to vote for them.

    I'll be watching Big Brother US this summer and pass on The Glass House, though The Glass House definitely seems more your speed. I say live and let live, just as long as people don't get the two shows confused, as one is vastly more intelligent and superior.

    well if it's more like BB UK, I will watch this one instead of the generic, poorly hosted CBS bb!

    what about the choice versus the voice………



  7. 7

    they need to change it up a bit how about actually following people around edtv style and killing people off instead of voting ….now that would be a showwwwwwwwwww

    CBS should lash out at that annoying ChenBot creature they had the nerve to allow on three of there network shows. I want more diversity in films an on tv but not more of Juile Chen.
    CBS's lawsuit has no real merit to my mind countless networks have on shows that carbon copies of each other. The Big Brother franchise started in the Netherlands in 1997 it was not Dreamed up by CBS so they can take a flying leap off the side of a very tall building.

    I love big brother! Can't wait for it to come back! I've been hoping for so long for an all star season.

    Big Brother needs to be shook up………….they are getting boring……….not enough twists and turns…………..I am looking forward to "Glass House" CBS did steal the format from The View, and named it The Talk………….I agree with 6one9…….the first comment!

    There hasn't been a unique idea in Hollywood in years and clearly this is just a photocopy of another show. I say sue away. Perhaps it will discourage copies and God forbid encourage a little originality. BTW isn't it time for reality shows to die off yet?



  12. 12

    CBS needs the competition. They completely edit what actually happens in the house to their advantage. Anyone who watches the feeds knows this. Sometimes the TV show edit is absolutely nothing like what actually happened. And the "diary room" plants ideas in peoples heads to sway things the way they think will be best. I love Big Brother and have followed every season but don't even bother watching the actual show except for elimination night.
    The very first season of BB was run exactly like Glass House and the international BB. The voting public decided who was evicted from the house. And they changed their format after only one season.
    So I say bring it on ABC, I'll check it out and see how it is…

    WHAT IS CBS THINKING….. The Talk is the biggest knock off show I have ever seen. Not only do they discuss the same daily topics, The Talk hired 2 African American hosts just like The View. I believe The View was the first talk program to have 2 African American Women until The Talk came along and copied. The only difference is Julie is Asian and Barbara is annoying.

    Hypocritical, considering "Big Brother" is a rip off of MTV's "Real World" which began 20 years ago!

    Re: Doodlebug7220 – Big Brother US is NOTHING like The Real World. Have you even seen the show? For one, Big Brother US is a competition. The Real World isn't. No one gets eliminated in The Real World. Big Brother US is all about strategy, along with athletic and mental performance.

    In Big Brother US the houseguests are not allowed to have ANY contact with the outside world. In The Real World, the cast lives their lives as they would at home, dealing with business, night life, and other encounters, since the point of the show is to pretty much for the viewer to see someone live a normal life that is not their own. Hence, The Real World.

    The list goes on and on. Frankly, the two shows could not be more different, and I was just describing the mission of the two shows. I didn't even touch the production. What's next? Are you going to say Survivor is a rip off of Bear Grylls?
