LOS ANGELES (AP) — A federal judge has set a hearing on a motion by CBS to block the premiere of the upcoming ABC reality series "The Glass House."
U.S. District Judge Gary Feess set a hearing for Friday morning in Los Angeles for lawyers for the rival networks to argue their positions. The hearing comes days before "Glass House" is scheduled to premiere on Monday night.
CBS wants the show knocked from airwaves because it claims the series copies elements and secrets that belong to its longtime series "Big Brother."
CBS and ABC have been sparring for more than a month over the series, which invites audience input and voting to determine which contestants remain in the namesake house.
ABC has denied wrongdoing and urged Fees to reject the motion.
