CBS settles with ABC over show that allegedly ripped off “Big Brother”

“The Glass House” was a short-lived reality program on ABC

Two giants of television have settled their differences over the similarities in their two shows.

CBS had long been concerned that ABC's reality show “The Glass House” was uncannily like its own show “Big Brother.”  Compounding this concern was the fact that staff who had formerly worked on “Big Brother”  at CBS had since moved to ABC. “The Glass House” was only on TV for a brief time last summer, and when it performed poorly, CBS dropped the suit, though I guess it didn't take.
