Reality TV-Glass House Controversy

This June 2012 photo released by ABC shows a sitting area for "The Glass House," an interactive real-time reality competition, where 14 contestants will live and compete for a quarter million dollars. The series, which relies on audience participation, premieres Monday, June 18, on ABC. CBS is asking a federal judge to block the ABC series because they claim it closely copies “Big Brother” and is using secrets that former staffers gleaned from the longtime reality competition show. A federal judge has set a hearing on CBS’ motion for Friday, June 15 in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/ABC, Nicole Wilder)
