I don’t know how many of you are keeping up with the battle of the super networks over Big Brother, but the lawsuit is getting nasty. Like, Miss Jackson nasty!
Here’s the background info: ABC just developed a new reality show called Glass House. The premise is pretty much that big brother is always watching a bunch of wannabe stars living in a glass house and competing for prizes.
Well, if that sounds familiar to you – CBS agrees. They sent ABC a cease and desist letter demanding the show be pulled as it is a blatant rip off of Big Brother, the long running and immensely popular reality show built around a similar premise.
Well, now CBS is suing ABC! Whoa… is the earth going to implode now? TMZ reports that the suit is now in a LA federal court and CBS’s suit alleges: “If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then CBS should take pride in ABC’s latest reality television project, ‘Life in a Glass House.'” They are calling the show a “carbon copy” of Big Brother and accuses ABC of making an “obvious attempt … to capitalize on its unique success.”
