NEW YORK — As Simon Cowell leaves the reality-show judge's chair, his old foil, Paula Abdul, is coming back.

CBS said Monday that Abdul will be a judge on "Got to Dance," a competition expected to make it on the air sometime next season. She'll also be an executive producer for the series, which is based on a successful competition that airs in Britain.

Cowell is leaving "American Idol" after this season, concentrating on another show he'll import from England. He had a love-hate relationship with Abdul, who left Fox's top-rated game before the current season when she couldn't reach a deal on a new contract. She's been fielding other offers since then.

There's no immediate word on when "Got to Dance," which will feature various forms of dancing, will go on the air.
