I was looking over this bit about CBS trying to get a restraining order against ABC to keep from airing their newest attempt at reality TV, Glass House. At first I thought it seemed odd that CBS was feeling so insecure about the competition.
Turns out that the exec producer of Glass House is none other than a former producer of CBS’s Big Brother. To make matters worse, apparently it looks like he based the ABC show off a manual that Big Brother was outlined from.
A manual that is considered to be a CBS proprietary document. He referenced the manual during the development of Glass House.
The nitty gritty details where this former CBS staffer kept making a deeper and deeper hole for himself.
I’m not sure what he was thinking, but now he’s put himself, his future and ABC at a huge risk.
Now that’s a “duh” moment.
