LoL CBS lost.

Judge denies CBS's effort to stop 'Glass House'

A Los Angeles federal judge said Friday that he was inclined to deny CBS's effort to stop ABC's "Glass House" in advance of its debut on Monday.

U.S. District Court Judge Gary Allen Feess said at the start of a hearing that he was "not persuaded" that CBS's claims of copyright infringement and theft of trade secrets.

CBS claims "Glass House" is a ripoff of "Big Brother." It is seeking a temporary restraining order to halt the show.

Well, the show was just okay. Alex is a shitty "villain". He is a douche bag that is trying to hard. I can see him being voted to stay though, the rest of them seem pretty dull.

I wonder why that one guy dropped out already? He couldn't take being up for elimination? What a baby.

I watched a little bit of the feeds before. It was boring. They were making cakes and the voice was telling them to each tell the viewers what they were doing 5 years ago. I listed to a few of them and turned it off.

I watched it. It wasn't bad, but not great either. Joy is my favorite so far I think.

Well, I definitely don't think it's as good as BB, to be honest. Not even close. LOL.

But I am going to stick with it for a while. :)


I can't remember many of the people. I like Erica.

I kinda loved the show...I thought it was fun & entertaining!

LMAO at Jacob quitting the show...ABC is TOTALLY pimping out Alex as the epic villain of the show who viewers will love to hate or just flat out hate. I found that whole villain schtick from Alex very manufactured and forced! I have to admit I laughed at him a few times though (out of enjoyment), the guy is hilarious. LOL. But a total douche. I think he's entertaining but could get old FAST.

Kevin :wub:

Robin :wub:

:lol: at the voice of the show. I forget exactly how she said it but I LOL'd when she said something like "Jacob, you are up for elimination. Sad."

My favorite part was the beginning with the announcer going "THE SHOW THEY DIDN'T WANT YOU TO SEE".

LMAO!!

I was shocked the show was in HD. Amazing house & cameras, BB might need to step it up a notch. Really eager to see how the ratings were for this show, I'll be sad if it fails.

Eh, it was "okay". I wonder if they'll closely monitor personal facts, nudity, challenges, etc. like they do with BB live feeds.


Gene's definitely my favorite, so far.

Alex is a douche. And very full of himself. And I'm sorry... I couldn't help but laugh when he said, "I asked America, and they told me they want me to be the most epic and entertaining reality contestant EVER in the HISTORY of the WORLD"................. :mellow:

Already, Alex and Mike are my 2 least favorites. Not sure why, but I also don't like Kevin for some reason.

I also wonder why Jacob quit... I really liked him.

LMAO at lame-o Ashley wearing a Mardi Gras mask into the house.

Jeffrey's already insanely annoying to me. (I will NOT comment on the hot tub scene...)


In case you all didn't catch on to it during the show... apparently, the contestants are allowed to tweet? The show has set up Twitter accounts for everyone... @TGH(insert name)

I think I'll miss that guy. LOL

I'll probably keep up with a few more episodes, but I was pretty bored throughout. I also heard that they don't stay in the house 24/7. Each weekend they leave and go to sequester back at the hotel.

Jeffrey was one of the few I actually found likeable. So many are just blah...

I heard that too. That's probably how they were able to afford such a nice looking house. The crew is only paid for five days of work and the prize at the end is only $250,000. That's quite a bit of cash saved.

The premiere was pretty boring. I definitely prefer the setup of Big Brother to this show. The way they vote to evict is ridiculous, LoL.

This show is DOA IMO...the cast is boring...Alex being a "villain" is so manufactured.

Big Brother has nothing to worry about with this one.

I also think it is very shitty for the show to have only 1 showing a week..big mistake IMO.

I will continue to check it out in hopes of it getting better...but my expectations are very low now.

I don't know how I feel about this show, it was rather boring to me, but I will give it another chance.

I felt the same way. The computer voiced woman telling them what to do and etc was pretty annoying and stupid sounding too.
