The good thing is it starts almost a month b4 BB, so it can be kinda like a warm up.

The other thing is ..I 'm going to try not to compare it to BB and nit pick it. It cant be exactly like BB so we have to watch and review it for what it is and with an open mind.


I hope my summer shows deliver because my winter/spring shows really didnt do much for me. I have not been enjoying DWTS (but nothing else has been on). I've even been only tuning into the end of amazing race to see if Bren and Rach are still there. I have never been a survivor fan but i did tune in until colton left. Even my Atlanta housewives didnt bring it like they usually do.

I really did enjoy Shah's of Sunset and the Jersey housewives never disappoint !!!

Oh NO..its on and poppin with CBS and ABC...................................................................


Glass House’ Too Similar to ‘Big Brother’?
CBS thinks so, and they're doing something about it. Zing!


CBS caught wind of the upcoming ABC reality show, The Glass House, and let’s just say they are not amused with it’s similarities to their own Big Brother.

They have fired off Cease & Desist letters to the top executives at ABC as well as Big Brother veterans who now work for ABC and the new show.

CBS lawyer Scott Edelman stated: “In the strongest possible terms, we must admonish ABC and anyone involved in the development or production of Glass House that they will be acting at their own peril if they continue to proceed in this manner and that CBS has instructed us to pursue all available remedies if this course of conduct continues.” (THR)

As it turns out, there’s quite a large group of former staff from CBS’ Big Brother who have been working on the show. Those people include ABC alternative development executive Corie Henson, staffers Kenny Rosen and Mike O’Sullivan and more than a dozen others. This according to Cease & Desist documents which read:

“Even worse, CBS is informed that Glass House is being produced by a team of at least 18 former members of CBS’ Big Brother production staff — all of whom were privy to trade secrets and other confidential, proprietary information and signed broad and binding non-disclosure agreements in connection with Big Brother.”

Fans of Big Brother were also quick to point out the similarities between the two shows. Most were intrigued by the show and said they would be tuning in, but also added the show could never compare to their true love, Big Brother.

I am not surprise by this. Glass house is exactly the same as Big brother its not even a different spin on it. The fan voting may be different from our version but all the international version of Big Brother work that way. I am so surprise that so many ex workers are working on the Glass House, I wonder what happened there esp. with Mike O. With so many working on Glass House I'm guessing new blood might be a good thing for BB.

ahhhhh excellent point! They need to get over themselves. Every reality show rips off another reality show. Its pretty much the same reality show recycled over and over again with a different gimmick. Each week someone goes home until the last person standing wins money. Maybe it will put some life into the producers of big brother and their cheapness and old, stale ideas.

Here is the inside scoop on what to expect from ABC’s New Reality TV Show “The Glass House”.
The Glass House is set to première on June 18th, 2012, where 14
contestants will compete in weekly challenges to gain the admiration and
votes of the viewing public for the chance to win $250,000.
About “The Glass House”
On the premiere, 14 contestants will enter the house and compete in
challenges that America will be deciding what happens in the house.
Every week one contestant will be evicted from the house, where the last
contestant remaining in the house wins the $250,000.

What choices will America get to make?
The viewing audience will get the opportunity to vote on a number of
things that affect the contestants in the house. America will have the
power to decide who goes and who stays, in addition to controlling other
things such as what the contestants eat, what they wear, where they
sleep. Most importantly America will also get the chance to vote to
decide who returns to the house after being evicted.

How will a contestant be removed from the house?
Following the loss of a challenge the losing team’s captain and another
team member from the losing team that the house votes on will go into
“LIMBO”.

What is “LIMBO”?
“LIMBO” is a section of the outside area of the house where the two
contestants will go until one of them is permitted to re-enter the
house.

How are Team Captains chosen?
The two contestants with the lowest votes from the viewing public will be chosen as the team captains for the week.

How can a contestant return to the house?
The viewing public decides by voting on who they want to return to the
house. America has all the power to decide who returns and who doesn’t.

What happens to the contestant that America does not pick to return to the house?
The contestant that is not chosen to return to the house will be eliminated from the game permanently.

How many television episodes will air of “The Glass House”?
The Glass House will air 10 television episodes during the first season of the reality show.

How will I be able to decide what happens in the house?
You will be able to manipulate a number of events in the house through a
Live Stream Voting System, Daily Voting and also by picking your
favorites in the house.

Live Stream Voting, what is it?
Live Stream Voting allows you the real-time ability to influence the events in the house during the live stream.

Daily Voting, what is it?
Daily Voting will allow the viewing public to vote on a number of events
that influence the house throughout the day, including being able to
vote on who should return from “LIMBO”. The results of Daily Voting will
impact the television episodes.

What is the reason for voting for favourites?
As the viewing public you will be able to vote for as many or on as few
of the contestants as you would like to remain in the house. At the
conclusion of the voting period, the two contestants with the least
amount of votes will become the team captains for that week’s
challenges.

How often does the Live Stream occur?
Monday for 4 hours from 8pm to 12am (PST) and again from Tuesday – Thursday at 12pm (PST)

How do I audition to be on “The Glass House”?
ABC casting directors will be doing a nationwide search for “dynamic,
competitive, energetic and outgoing individuals with audition held in
Los Angeles, Pheonix, Austin, and Boston. If you are not able to make it
to these locations you can send a photo and an email description to ABC Casting information

I haven't watched the videos yet, but I'll probably watch the first show (hopefully with an open mind), just to see how it is. I can't imagine how invested we the viewers will be with a 1 hour episode at 10pm EST one night a week with about 7 hours of live stream (will this be uncensored and is there a fee?). LOL bitch bitch bitch
This all just seems like the way of networks flooding the TV with similar content. (I.e, American Idol, The Voice, Duets, etc.). There are no more fresh ideas?!

It's interesting how many BB fans I've read complaining about this show already from the looks of the cast to it not being a 24hr live feed.

I'll tune in and give it a chance. I have never seen any entire cast of BB as being anything more than mediocre. Sure there have been good looking people on the seasons but never has there been an entire cast of good looking people or even half the cast for that matter. I mean c'mon look at some of the people BB has had on.... Chicken George, Ronnie, Cowboy, Michelle BB10, Michele BB11, Lydia, Natalie BB11, Nakomis, and the list goes on and on. I've never agreed when other BB fans complain how they always cast "models" or "pretty people" for BB.

As for Glass House not having a 24/7 live feed. Thank God! I can barely keep up with BB's season. Besides I used to ONLY watch the CBS show for BB for many seasons before I got the feeds and I felt just as invested as I was once I started watching the feeds.

At first people were complaining that it was too similar to BB, now people are complaining that it isn't similar enough! I'll watch the show, probably won't watch any of the feeds, even if they're free. Big Brother is enough, if not too much, for me in the summer. I'm just hoping that this lights a fire under Alison's ass. BB doesn't need a total makeover, just some tweaks would be nice. Overall I don't expect much from Glass House, just some entertainment during a season when not much other than BB is on.
