Fox: No 'American Idol' announcement Monday

Fox sources say there will be no "Idol" announcement at its TCA panel on Monday.

"No deals are signed."

Keep in mind, however, last year Cowell signed his "X Factor" deal minutes before taking the TCA stage.

Frankly, there's been so much back and forth, we're skeptical about anything until it happens (or doesn't).

Also: LA Times says J Lo's deal is holding things up, that Jenny From the Block wants pretty much the whole neighborhood before signing. We keep hearing that it's essentially a done deal. Steven Tyler, though, well, let's just say a lot of people are skeptical that he's a good fit for the brand.

UPDATE: It's Sunday afternoon and Fox is reiterating: No announcement tomorrow.
