 "Past Life" is dead, with little hope of reincarnation.

Fox Thursday pulled the drama from its lineup after just two weeks (and three airings). This week’s episode sank to a 1.1/3 in the adults 18-49 demo, sealing its fate.

For the next three weeks, Fox will air original episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" at 9 p.m. Thursdays. Repeats of "Fringe" return March 18; originals on April 1.

"Nightmares" will also still air Fridays at 9.

Fox says it will air the remaining "Past Life" episodes later in the season on another night. But as for new original episodes? Don’t hold your breath.
