Well, so much for Paula Abdul's return to network TV.

Just a few days after ABC was reportedly all ready to sign the former American Idol judge up as host of a new version of Star Search, negotiations have fallen through.

Sources tell E! News that the network is not planning on moving forward with Abdul as host, although the show might still be happening.

Word is that both parties were at the proverbial table, a deadline was set to agree upon the terms of her contract, and then no deal was made.

We wonder what Paula could have wanted that they ended up dropping the whole idea... A cohosting slot for her dog? Time off to do X-Factor? What?!
