CBS Exec Testifies on ‘Survivor’ Rival

From Bloomberg News

CBS television network President Leslie Moonves told a judge that the hit show “Survivor” would suffer if rival ABC were allowed to broadcast a competing reality show Moonves called “pretty terrible.”

CBS, a unit of Viacom Inc., is asking U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in New York to block Walt Disney Co.'s ABC from broadcasting an American version of the British hit “I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!”

CBS says ABC’s reality show, which has yet to air, infringes the “Survivor” copyright by mimicking settings and stunts, including eating bugs.
