The show has potential. I'll be checking it out next week. (if CBS doesn't delay it)

I gotta agree after watching the clips of the house guests, no one really jumped out at me as someone I MUST see. But maybe once they're actually in the house, they will have more personality than just a promo does.

Can't hurt to check it out.

I think this show is going to struggle to get ratings and be canceled at the end of it's 1st season maybe even during, This cast looks bland and boring and having the viewers (however many there are) vote one who stays and wins is never a good idea.

Interesting...

During the deposition, sources say he admitted that about 27 former Big Brother staffers are working on Glass House, and that he consulted and even copied Big Brother manuals when putting together the plan for Glass House.

I couldn't even get through the bios. I tried reading a couple, but it was one big paragraph for each and I just stopped.

I will still check it out.

I plan to watch The Glass House just to see what it's all about if it makes it past the injuction.

What a mess! I sense that CBS may be a tad afraid this show will be better than BB. I read somewhere that the people who left CBS did so due to the low salaries they pay their employees. They are making more money now, which is a huge incentive to leave BB.

We all know CBS has made BB very cheaply. They haven't updated the set, competitions etc. like they should have. Maybe this will give them a wake up call to try harder. I hope so. BB needs to be freshened up imo. It's become a little stale.

Court Rejects ABC Opposition To CBS ‘Glass House’ Restraining Order

Breaking … A federal judge has denied ABC’s efforts to slow down CBS’ desire for a temporary restraining order to shut down alleged Big Brother rip-off Glass House. ABC now has until 5 PM Monday to file any opposition to the TRO request CBS filed late last night. Once ABC file their material, CBS lawyers will likely respond by the next day. All of which means hearing on the TRO request to shut down production and the June 18 debut of Glass House will likely occur sometime next week.

This show is going to suck, I can just tell. They will all be like a bunch of actors, faking it to win over the tv audience. If there is bad behavior, it will be fake IMO.

As a weapon, Big Brother should fill the house with the meanest cast ever. LOL

If it wasn't for CBS and Big Brother suing ABC and the Glass House, This show would have come and gone in one season without ever being noticed or remembered.

ITA scott. CBS has given them tons of publicity with the lawsuit.

The house is amazing. I'm going to watch just to see what it's about but I bet Nancy is right. It will be very scripted with lots of fake drama.

Quote :

ABC has just filed its opposition to CBS’ request for a temporary restraining order that would halt production on the reality show Glass House and prevent its June 18 premiere, for which ABC says it has already spent over $16 million for marketing.

In its opposition today, ABC asks the court to deny CBS’s application. The network argues that “CBS’s copyright claim will not succeed” as “none of the alleged similarities shared by Big Brother and The Glass House involve copyright protectable elements – they are all generic staples of the reality show genre: people living in a house, competing with each other to avoid elimination, and winning a prize.

ABC also argues that it would be the side that would suffer real hardship if CBS’ RTO request is granted. “It would cause significant harm if this Court postponed (Glass House) after voting for contestants by the public has already commenced, after ABC spent $16 million to promote a June 18 premiere, and after ABC gave The Glass House prime real estate in ABC’s summer schedule after The Bachelorette,” the opposition says. “A temporary restraining order, even for a week, would seriously undermine the show’s potential success.”

Sources tell Deadline that CBS expects to respond to ABC’s opposition filing within 24 hours. With the countdown on for Glass House’s debut, CBS hopes to have a hearing on the matter by the end of the week.

They keep splitting up and answering as both a group and some are answering as individuals. Are they getting some prize for answering as America or is this just for "fun"?

LOL! I do feel as if I've lost an hr of my life watching this. Hopefully the producers will pay attention to what people have to say about it so far and make things better along the way.

Definitely no BB by a longgggggg shot so CBS should let the lawsuit go and work more on making this season of Big Brother a good one.

If that question was asked live on the first show in the BB house it would change the game for the rest of the season! Everybody would be paranoid alliances would form everybody would go fucking ape shit, But in this house everyone is happy and laughing and high fives making those damn hand harts and duck faces ARRRG

Well, I gave this live stream 5 minutes of my time. That was much too long. They shouldn't have informed them the feeds were on if they wanted the audience to really get to know these people. Also, let's not do Q&A interaction with polls. Who thought THAT was a good idea?

CBS Continues Attack on ABC's 'Glass House' in New Court Filing
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/cbs-big-brother-abcs-glass-house-336385


CBS continues efforts to stop the upcoming debut of ABC's upcoming reality series Glass House, which CBS argues is too similar to its long-running hit Big Brother.

On Tuesday, CBS submitted a new court filing that portrays its legal adversary of being short on the merits and inconsistent in making the case that Glass House isn't a copycat.
CBS says that it deserves a temporary restraining order because ABC has violated copyright and misappropriated trade secrets through the hiring of 30 former Big Brother employees, including showrunner Kenny Rosen, who was formerly a producer on Big Brother. On Monday, ABC detailed the case against the injunction, which CBS hasn't wasted any time in making a reply.
ABC's supposed failings are listed by CBS in Tuesday's filing, including the alleged concession of access to its intellectual property and the failure "to identify a single show (other than their own) that employs the same compilation of elements and expression that Big Brother does."

CBS says that what ABC has "done thus far is continually change their story on infringement," from whether Glass House is locked in concrete final form to the derivation of the show. CBS says that Rosen has tried to defend the show by saying it was really based on The Hunger Games rather than Big Brother, but now ABC "abandon(s) that position."

To avoid a TRO, ABC has argued that the "processes and techniques [are] already well known to everyone who has ever worked in reality television" and that none of the alleged similarities between the shows constitute copyright protectable elements.

In reaction, CBS says that ABC is trying to "rationalize" theft.
