If CBS Copies "The View" Would It Be More Of A Clone Than A Competitor?

If CBS copies a show format for format and plays it at the exact same time as the competition, would it make a difference?

CBS President Les Moonves' wife, Julie Chen, could soon be the face of a new daytime panel chat show for mothers. Chen -- who has a son, Charlie, with Moonves -- and "Roseanne" star and lesbian mom Sara Gilbert are preparing to shoot a pilot for the network for a show to rival ABC's "The View."

I think an alternative to "The View" would work. It would need one hell of a mediator however. But set it up as two conservatives and two liberals or even go for the anti-View approach with three conservatives and one liberal. Say Michelle Malkin, Angie Harmon, and Liz Cheney for the conservative side and Kristen Powers as the token liberal. Malkin even toyed around with something like that long ago on Hot Air. And the others are not strangers to doing TV either.

The sad thing is that no other network would touch it other than a channel under the Fox News umbrella.

Or maybe not.
