They are putting clips up as they go through out the day in the house on the ABC website.

If you log on to the website using facebook,twitter, or creating an account you can vote for different things everyday. For example...the vote that is about to end is do you want the players to eat only fruit or only vegetables for 24 hours. Apparently you'll vote on challenges too but I guess I missed that.

well here we go with the second day.

2 of the boys are already worried about being the ones to go home (alex and I think jacob)

Some are playing volleyball ,lol! at least they aren't sitting on their thuimbs.

They have a twitter booth in the house so I'm assuming they will be able to tweet from inside the glass house at some point.

Right now they are each being asked what their biggeest regret/mistake in life was. They can discuss in private or in front of the group.

I watched a bit today. It is different with the viewer interaction and voting, but it doesn't really appeal to me because it is all like manufactured/set up (during the feeds anyway). It isn't like BB at all, so I don't see CBS winning that case. But they shouldn't be worried at all IMO. I don't see this show "replacing" BB or anything (if that is what they are worried about).

'The Glass House' live feeds reveal Mike kills baby bunnies

"The Glass House" live feeds continue to be a little baffling - Wednesday, June 13, the houseguests were made to answer a question about their biggest mistake or regret, one by one. And they could do it in front of the other guests or they could go off somewhere private.

Mike, the 48-year-old Bar mitzvah DJ, told this horrendous story about how one time he hit a bunny with his car - which, fine. Sometimes you hit things, it's horrible. But he shared that the bunny wasn't dead, and he didn't know what to do, so he backed over it. And it still wasn't dead! So he continued to go back and forth over it and it took forever to die.

Wow I hadn't heard anything about this show until today. Someone mentioned TGH in the BB14 thread and I went back and found this thread. The cast looks boring, the house kind of ugly. I don't know what they're expecting the HG to do? Sounds terribly boring.

From what I have read on twitter it seems that the houseguests are only aloud to eat vegetables for 24 hrs per the viewer's vote.

For the competition that I assume they already did they were divided into teams, one being the east and the other being the west. Alex was a team captain and his team lost so he automatically gets put up for eviction.

The questions they asked viewers to vote on today were a bit premature in my opinion based on what we have seen...like how are we suppose to know who should be alligned with who?!?!

Streaming from 3 to 4? WTH, don't they realize people work? I don't get what one hr. is going to give you. This is a stupid concept, I'm glad I have BBUK to keep me occupied.

I was hoping it would be at night and not the afternoon. I guess I'm only going to watch the tv show and none of the live feeds. Or maybe I won't see anything if CBS gets their way.

Today they played dodgeball with stuffed animal balls, koosh balls, and toilet paper rolls. Then they had an yoga instructor come in the house for "sexy yoga."

CBS Says 'Glass House' Web Stream Proves It's a 'Big Brother' Copycat


1:21 PM PDT 6/14/2012 by Daniel Miller, Eriq Gardner


In advance of a big hearing tomorrow that will determine if CBS can convince a judge to shut down ABC's Glass House, CBS has fired a new salvo.

CBS Continues Attack on ABC's 'Glass House' in New Court Filing

On Thursday, attorneys for CBS filed a supplemental declaration from copyright expert Jeff Rovin, who claims in the 11-page document that ABC's program is a "copy" of CBS's Big Brother. Rovin reviewed Glass House footage that ABC released on the Internet. Rovin's declaration is adorned with pictures and he tries to make the case that the new series is substantially similar to CBS' long-running reality TV hit

Rovin alleges that Glass House copies everything from Big Brother's camera angles to the way it introduces characters to viewers and even a copycat "conversational pool/spa segment."

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/glass-house-big-brother-lawsuit-copycat-337887

This person is tweeting about the rediculousness of the stuff that CBS put in the lawsuit https://twitter.com/#!/splashroy . Apparently BB is using tattoo talk, hot tub, clothes they wear, camera angles, lights, twitter, fan interaction as examples on how ABC is copying. I couldn't download the pdf that's in the article to see all the examples.

Yes I saw that earlier and thought it was a joke. A ridiculous filing from CBS IMO. Here are some screencaps from the pdf giggles:











At least there will be some closure tomorrow morning I guess. I expect ABC to be allowed to continue the show.

ABC scored a victory -- at least for now -- in the lawsuit over its upcoming reality series "Glass House." U.S. District Judge Gary Feess on Friday morning temporarily denied CBS' request for a temporary restraining order against the series, which is scheduled to premiere Jan. 18.

Lawyers for both sides are currently arguing their sides before Feess.

Good, that was the right decision IMO. They went through all that money, and this Glass House will probably only last one season.

It seems pretty lame from what I have heard. And having the live feeds only an hour during the workday? Totally a bad idea. I am just waiting for BB and might catch this on TV.

Unless Glass House does some amazing, off the wall stuff once the season starts, I don't think CBS really has anything to worry about. This will more than likely be a one (season) then done show.

Those supposed examples (pictured above) of how Glass House is copying BB is ridiculous. (Even though I do think they are copying them big time, the examples are petty and crazy).

The camera angles? Really? CBS has a monopoly of what camera angles can be used?
Both shows have blondes doing the dishes/using the sink???
Glass House is supposed to monitor what the houseguests talk about and make sure they never discuss any topic that has ever been mentioned on Big Brother (i.e. Tattoos)???
They use similar colors with their decorations/furniture? BB changes their color scheme/themes every season. No matter what color scheme Glass House used, if they have any fashion sense, they would more than likely picked something for one of the rooms that was similar to one of the multiple rooms from 13 seasons of BB.

I see why they (CBS) are doing what they are doing, but the way they are doing it seems petty. The overall theme of the show, the fact that a large percentage of the crew were former BB employees, and things like that are good to bring up, as that's true, but camera angles, color schemes, and conversation topics, no.

It hasn't aired here yet, but from tweets, it sounds like CBS has nothing to worry about.

I usually try to support the home team, but not in his case.
