TV CBS vs ABC

This June 18, 2012 photo released by ABC shows contestants Apollo, left, and Jeffrey are shown during the premiere episode of "The Glass House." After failing to stop the debut of ABC's "The Glass House," CBS tried another tactic against its competitor: sarcasm. CBS had argued in court that the ABC show is a copy of CBS' "Big Brother." On Wednesday, CBS issued a tongue-in-cheek release claiming it was developing a reality series called "Dancing on the Stars" _ a jab at ABC's "Dancing With the Stars." The mock series will air from the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles and feature what CBS called "moderately famous and sort of well-known people" who will compete by dancing on stars' graves, the network said.
