MyNet Announces Fall Lineup

May 27, 2009  •  Post A Comment

“Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader,” “Deal or No Deal” and “The Unit” are rounding out MyNetworkTV’s fall 2009-10 schedule, the network announced today.
MyNet, which is moving away from original programming and toward a “programming service model” next season, announced a partial lineup earlier this year, with flagship “WWE Smackdown” remaining on Fridays, two hours of NBC Universal Domestic Television’s “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” on Monday and a movie night on Thursday.
The new schedule will premiere Monday, Sept. 28.
The syndicated versions of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” and “Deal or No Deal” will air on Tuesdays in hour blocks, with two episodes of “Fifth Grader” at 8 p.m. and two episodes of “Deal” at 9 p.m.
“Fifth Grader” is distributed by Twentieth Television, while “Deal” is distributed by NBC Universal Television Distribution.
A two-hour block of “The Unit,” distributed by Twentieth Television, will air on Wednesdays. “The Unit” is entering syndication next season, and was recently canceled by CBS.
Several specials are also planned for the season, including the “2009 World Music Awards,” the “2009 World Magic Awards” and the “2009 Hollywood Christmas Parade” in December.

  1. What a joke. My station already has all this syndicated programming, I could program prime better myself, why do I need My Net to do it?

  2. Then why don’t you program a station better yourself? Oh, I forgot…you must first own a network!

  3. wow!! sounds really groundbreaking!!

  4. I just don’t understand the purpose of MyNetworkTV. I understand the reason it exists, but it just seems best to just let each station do their own thing. I guess it’s all about economics. There really are so few truly independent stations. I know in Atlanta we have Peachtree TV – which was created when TBS went truly national. I know some other cities have similar independent stations, but with the 5 nets, MyNetworkTV, and the Hispanic stations, there are so few independents. I remember the late 80s, early 90s, where the stations that became WB and UPN had some great syndicated shows. Bring those days back!!

  5. The WB/UPN, now the unnecessary and far inferior CW/My Net are the banes of broadcast TV.
    I agree with AJ — convert these stations back to independents. I see no point to their affiliations with networks that only program all of 10 hours per week. It’s unnecessary. The CW and My Net might as well be syndicators and let these stations function on their own. They will probably generate better numbers because they will have a stronger pulse on their local markets and can program accordingly.

  6. That is, perhaps, the worst so-called “lineup” of programming I have ever seen in my life.

  8. Sadly, the MyTV lineup doesn’t look any worse than what the “real” networks are offering us this fall…
    THE JAY LENO SHOW? THE SHARK TANK? NCIS LOS ANGELES? HANK? THE MIDDLE? (Do we really need to see Kelsey Grammer and Patrica Heaton back on TV AGAIN???) MELROSE PLACE?
    SNL THURSDAY? THE MARRIAGE REF?
    This coming fall looks like one of the worst ever.
