Judge Did Not Put Stay on ABC’s ‘Glass House’

CBS-Network-logo 200wI’m a bit disappointed that a judge did not put a stay on the airing of ABC’s Glass House.  From what I saw, if a few CBS ex producers snag a proprietary tome from CBS’s Big Brother, and used it to put together Glass House, well, it seems wrong.

I mean, sure, people steal ideas all the time.  If you watch the right websites or have good timing to see it, you see it all the time.  A good idea happens on one site, then the other site starts doing it.  A few sites seem pretty consistent with that pattern.

But be it as it may, plagiarism is quite the healthy beast these days.  But when you snag a working manual from your company and take it to the next one, seems to cross a threshold of legal, never mind ethical.

But then I have to wonder how much weight was thrown around, considering that ABC is the house of the mouse. (Disney)  And they’re pretty powerful in some circles.

Never mind the nondisclosure agreements that the ex-producers from Big Brother signed before leaving CBS and heading straight to ABC with their ideas to “develop” Glass House.

But CBS is at least having some fun with it.

They’ve announced their own new dancing series, in jest of course, and it goes like this:

The dazzling new show, DANCING ON THE STARS, will be broadcast live from the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and will feature moderately famous and sort of well-known people you almost recognize competing for big prizes by dancing on the graves of some of Hollywood’s most iconic and well-beloved stars of stage and screen.
