The Phosita Blog has a great idea–search the Trademark Office to find the names of reality television shows before they hit the airwaves.
As an example, Phosita searched for the Trademark Electronic Search System for American Idol to find out who owned the trademar, then searched by that owner’s name to see what other trademarks they were trying to get. Some new shows Phosita has found include:
* Bad Mothers of America;
* Celebrity Idol;
* American Caveman;
* Dallas Wives.
