Here’s the deal, in an attempt to derail the launch of a new CBS dating show called 3, which is like The Bachelorette X 3 (ladies), ABC switched the finale to Sunday July 22. (Of course, it usually would be Monday 7/23).
July 22 was the date CBS planned to debut 3. The plot thickens though… In response to ABC’s move, CBS has now bumped back 3‘s premiere to 7/29.
Wow, are we back in high school?
The broadcast feud didn’t start with the dating shows though; it began over CBS’ Big Brother. Earlier this year when ABC announced it was launching The Glass House—a Big Brother parody—CBS freaked. They sued ABC, noting that TGH employed many former BB staffers who, CBS claimed, disclosed trade secrets and violated the non-disclosure agreement they signed while working on BB.
Holy Hollywood! Have you guys ever heard of Karma? The Glass House tanked in the ratings… Relax!
Anyway, you guys don’t need to worry yourself with this drama, other than to make sure you keep an eye on the floating finale date. Who knows? ABC may change it to the 29th…or maybe both networks will keep pushing it back a week… forever! Poor Emily Maynard and Chris Harrison; they’ll never be able to come out with their—rumored—love affair.
Who do you think is the bigger baby in this situation: ABC or CBS?
