With the high profile lawsuit between CBS and ABC regarding their BIG BROTHER rip-off THE GLASS HOUSE resulting in that series still allowed to air, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler  briefly touched upon that copycat series at today’s Summer 2012 TCA CBS Press Tour and why it was necessary to protect their intellectual property with BIG BROTHER. “[The lawsuit] is on-going, so I can’t discuss it right now,” says Tassler. “The message needs to be communicated though that we’re incredibly protective of our brands and creative infra-structure of the shows themselves.” Related: MORE NEWS AND INTERVIEWS FROM THE SUMMER TCA’S […]Read On »

With GLEE entering its fourth season with storylines set in Ohio and New York, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly reveals this new structure has worked out quite nicely with the three scripts he’s read so far. “I’m very happy with how seamless it is,” says Reilly. “There is a thematic linkage between the two. I think it’s going to be an event for fun for the audience not knowing who is going to show up when. We have a core of returning character we will be servicing every week and limited deals with some actors joining here or there.” Reilly […]Read On »

Network: ABC, airs on Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 25, 2012 The BIG BROTHER knock-off THE GLASS HOUSE continues to progress despite being shown just once a week (I thought originally the show was going to be on three times a week but maybe the lack of ratings changed the network’s decision) and already you can see where only airing once a week is a bit of an issue. Cramming a week’s worth of reality show into a single hour is a tough thing do, especially when the whole point of the game is to show how the […]Read On »

Breaking News: CBS announces DANCING ON THE STARS show in fake press release

CBS eye logo

If it were April 1st, we’d think this was a pretty funny April Fool’s joke on behalf of CBS, but it’s June 20, and frankly it’s still funny. CBS has just put out a press release touting  their “supposedly” new shows DANCING ON THE STARS where celebrities dance on the grave of dead celebrities and a comedy called POST-MODERN FAMILY (which are plays on the ABC series DANCING WITH THE STARS and MODERN FAMILY. A CBS spokesman has confirmed that both of these shows are fake and this press release is the network’s tongue-in-cheek response to losing their legal battle […]Read On »

Network: ABC, Airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 18, 2012 ABC has long been trying to start a reality show franchise that it can own outside of THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE and DANCING WITH THE STARS powerhouses. They have tried to copy THE AMAZING RACE and failed. They had a great reality show in THE MOLE that never seemed to get off the ground in terms of viewers even though it was awesome. Now, they are trying to copy BIG BROTHER with THE GLASS HOUSE. Of course, this reality show made headlines before even airing because of the lawsuit […]Read On »

With “Prom-asauras” there are still remnants of the things that frustrate long-time fans (myself included), but it’s made up by […]Read On »
