This week marks the one year anniversary since Kevin won “The Glass House” on ABC. You remember, right?
He won The Glass House.
t was a show like Big Brother, but much worse?
Well, if you don’t remember The Glass House, you’re not alone. A bunch of former producers and folks who worked on Big Brother tried to take their talents to South Beach. I mean ABC.
Launching The Glass House a few weeks before the premiere of Big Brother 14 on CBS, the move was clearly designed to steal a bit of thunder from the Eye Network’s annual ratings juggernaut.
CBS sued because Glass House was such an obvious rip-off of Big Brother, and the lawsuit was tied up in court for months. Eventually they dropped the suit because the show was such a stinky bomb for ABC and appeared to do little or no damage to the Big Brother brand in the long-term.
