Past Life follows a team of past-life detectives who try to discover if a person’s problems and visions stem from traumatic events in a former life. The series stars Kelli Giddish, Nicholas Bishop, Ravi Patel, and Richard Schiff. The series was inspired by the book Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose.
In February, the FOX TV show got off to a disappointing start with a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.32 million viewers. That represented a loss of about 70% of the American Idol lead-in audience.
When the drama moved to Thursday a couple nights later, it attracted a meager 1.4 rating in the demo and 5.3 million viewers. Episode three ran opposite mostly repeats and viewership dropped even lower.
