Fox to 'Past Life': You know what? Just forget it...

Poor "Past Life."

Pastlife_2shot_0544_djrV1 The Fox drama about using reincarnation to solve crimes was originally announced as having the coveted "American Idol" lead-in last year.

Then Fox decided, um, yeah, not so much, and reduced the "Past Life" episode count to seven hours and scheduled "Past Life" to run on Thursdays instead -- giving "Idol" lead-in to its new reality show "Our Little Genius."

Then, in a seemingly fortuitous twist of fate for the crime drama, "Genius" suffered a mysterious ethical meltdown and vanished from the schedule. Ah ha! Holes.

So Fox announced earlier this week that one episode of "Past Life" will indeed get two "Idol" lead-ins on Feb. 9 and Feb. 16.

Now, Fox issues yet another scheduling change to say, actually, on second third fourth thought, "Past Life" will get one "Idol" lead-in after all and instead will stretch the Feb. 16th "American Idol."
