CBS announced Friday, August 17, 2012 that it was dropping its lawsuit against ABC over the series “The Glass House,” saying viewership numbers had rendered the case moot. CBS had sued claiming the series copied its hit show “Big Brother” and infringed its copyrights, but a judge refused to block the new series and it never caught on with viewers.
