NEW YORK (AP) — Now that ABC's "The Glass House" is on the air, it's hard not to wonder why CBS was so upset.
The ABC reality series debuted to just under 4 million viewers last week, placing it No. 63 in Nielsen's weekly rankings even in a quiet summer week. Nielsen said this Monday's second episode did even worse, with preliminary ratings saying it reached 3.3 million viewers.
CBS went to federal court to try and block ABC from showing the series, arguing it violated copyrights and trade secrets from its own "Big Brother."
A federal court judge in Los Angeles rejected CBS' argument.
