CBS is Suing ABC
There's a new reality show coming to ABC called "The Glass House," and CBS isn't happy about it. They think the new show is too similar to their reality show, "Big Brother." Both shows feature contestants living together in a house with viewer votes sending people home throughout the season. However, an ABC spokeswoman says "The Glass House" has added interactive elements. CBS, on the other hand, is asking a U.S. District Court for an injunction to stop ABC from debuting the show.
