Well it does make it different from BB though.
I had the same adverse reaction to living it up like shore live at a hotel. If they are in real sequester though it could be awesome. People coming out of sequester with all kinds of ridiculous and good plans. Plus they cycled on and off sequester might make things harder.
Most people on these shows are extroverts by nature and sequester is torture.
Plus if you're sequestered separately, you can't talk strategy (except with yourself ).
It will be interesting to see how they make this different from BB to keep from being successfully sued.
Really, how different does it have to be? Are any of these "talent" shows THAT different than any other one? To me, the only way they lose is if they copy EXACT portions of the show. Call them houseguests for example. Similar is not exactly the same.
You're right, but the difference here is that they hired a lot of ex-BB employees with BB experience and knowledge. When you're used to doing something one way, it's usually easiest to keep doing it that way. I don't think the BB suit has a leg to stand on, but it's more there as a threat to make sure that ABC doesn't carbon-copy BB.
The only leg CBS might have is if the staff they hired violated their non-disclosure agreements. Even if the show is mostly different, if they used some protected knowledge of BB in making the show, CBS could win in suing them staff, but not sure about keeping the show off the air.
Restraining order denied.
I am pleasantly surprised the judge acknowledged the fundamental copycat nature of the reality genre.
Looks like The Glass House is only on one night per week, while BB is usually 3 nights per week. A lot can change in one week. If viewers only watch the TV broadcast and don't keep up online, I would think a lot would be missed. Maybe that is part of why they are sequestered two days a week.
Don't forget, it starts tonight 10PM EST.
Live streaming on the web is:
Mondays 11PM - 3AM EST.
Tues/Wed/Thurs - 3PM - 4PM EST
Boy, they really don't want people to watch those streams do they?
Actually, my guide shows 10:02PM I set it up to record 1 min early, just in case.
I don't watch either show so I have absolutely no bias, but I did find the new CBS press release funny -
CBS announces "Dancing On the Stars"
Best press release ... ever.
Thanks for posting.
Just learning of this show now through this thread - was the premiere any good? I'll have to see if it is available On Demand.
Been watching the US Big Brother since season 1, and I don't see how this new show could be any good airing only once a week.
It was - good enough to feel in the gap.
I am still waiting to see if this show grabs me. If I am not hooked after the second episode, I likely will just wait for BB to air in a few weeks.
I love BB and I hated this. Can't quite put my finger on it. I deleted the SP.
I'm out. The limited live streams are worthless and offer no insight into the game. The appeal of BB to me is following the dynamics in the house over the course of a day or week--either by watching the live feeds or by following updates on forums, blogs, and twitter.
I've watched a few seasons of BB and I do wish this show had a host like Julie Chen. She was nice to look at and added more personality than just having the Big Sister voice.
I thought it was funny too when Howie (?) in a season of BB had a "Thanks Julie" shirt.
