30 Suspiciously Similar TV Shows Accused Of Ripping Off Another Series
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Remember the survival show, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!? Sadly for fans, it didn’t last long, but CBS must’ve been thrilled at the news. The network tried to sue ABC in 2002 because the show seemed like a total rip-off of Survivor, even though it was adapted from a British show. Both shows had a very similar format, where contestants had to endure physical challenges and harsh environments as they competed for a grand prize.
CBS sued ABC and tried to stop them from airing the show, but the judge ruled in ABC’s favor, claiming that the two shows were not substantially similar. In 2009, NBC tried its hand at a season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! but it was short-lived.
