LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A federal judge says he is inclined to allow ABC to air the premiere of its new reality series "The Glass House" over the objections of rival network CBS.
U.S. District Judge Gary Feess said Friday he was not immediately persuaded that CBS had proved it would be harmed if the new show aired.
CBS had sought an injunction, claiming "Glass House" violated its copyrights and trade secrets.
Feess disagreed, saying he thinks CBS is trying to protect generic elements inherent in reality TV.
The judge says he doesn't think his tentative decision will change but he'll take another look at the issues after hearing arguments Friday morning.
"Glass House" is scheduled to premiere Monday night.
