Fox News uncovered a hypothetical murder confession OJ Simpson gave years ago

"Simpson: Lost Confession? (ph)". "If I'd known he said this in 2006 I would not have objected to the release of this video", Darden said.

Fox countered the "Idol" revival with its own ratings stunt: A dramatic, two-hour interview special called "O.J".

For Fox, time, competitive zeal and spite add up to "O.J".

The former football star, 70, offers a detailed and disturbing version of what might have happened on June 12, 1994, when Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were found stabbed to death.

In addition, Simpson says during a heated argument, Brown fell and hurt herself.

"I just remember listening to the radio, which, I think it was Dan Rather, it really saved my life", Simpson said.

O.J. Simpson said that on the night his ex-wife and a friend of hers were brutally murdered, he was at the scene, "grabbed the knife" and, the next thing he knew, he was standing in "all kinds of ... blood and stuff".

JUDITH REGAN: What kind of stuff?

"Blood and stuff around", he replied.

Two years ago, in a documentary OJ: Made In America, the shamed-footballer's pal Mike Gilbert says he confessed while they drank beers and smoked pot.

"And he said "If she wouldn't have opened the door with a knife she'd probably still be alive".

In what appeared to be a move to undermine the ABC premiere of "American Idol" - a show Fox closed the curtains on in 2016 - Fox made a decision to air its Simpson special to compete against its former hit program. The only condition that he had was that he didn't want to call the book, "I Did It.' He wanted to put an 'if" in front of it so that he would have deniability with his children. He did the TV interview with publisher Judith Regan to generate publicity. In 2007, a court gave rights to the book to the Goldman family to satisfy a judgment against Simpson.

REGAN: You write about removing a glove before taking the knife from Charlie.

"I don't know why he had been by Nicole's house, but he told me: "You wouldn't believe what is going on over there". He told Los Angeles' NBC 4 in 2014 that he "looked at his hands and I looked at the gloves and I thought they would fit".

Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden, who was seated on a panel to comment on the interview, saw it differently. Bob's Burgers was a pretty good new episode about a new playground sport that takes over Wagstaff, but The Simpsons was really was just Homer sitting there telling some Fox News reporter about how he killed Marge and Flanders... He's now living in Las Vegas on parole.

A more than 10 year-old interview in which O.J. Simpson gave a hypothetical account of how he might have murdered his ex-wife fired up social media, but Americans proved more interested in watching the return of "American Idol", television ratings data on Monday showed.
