‘Deal’ set for MyNetworkTV

Gameshow returns to primetime

Gamer “Deal or No Deal” is returning to primetime next season — via MyNetworkTV.

The programming service began informing affils Wednesday of its fall lineup, which, as expected, is heavy on off-network drama repeats and gamers.

MyNet will air back-to-back episodes of “Deal or No Deal,” culled from the first two seasons of the show’s daytime syndicated run, on Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30 p.m.

Also that night, repeats of the syndicated daytime run of fellow gamer “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” (from the show’s first season in syndication) will run at 8 and 8:30 p.m.

As previously announced, MyNet picked up off-net repeats of “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” which will run Mondays at 8 and 9 p.m.; and “The Unit,” which will air Wednesdays at 8 and 9 p.m.

MyNet’s one original program, “WWE Friday Night Smackdown,” continues on Friday at 8 p.m.

On Thursdays, MyNet will air a movie package, with titles including “Courage Under Fire,” “Soul Food,” “Date Movie” and “Entrapment.”

Earlier this year MyNet announced plans to abandon original fare (except “Smackdown”) and focus on more of a syndication model, distributing off-net series to its affiliates in primetime.

“The Unit” and “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” are distributed by sister company Twentieth Television, while “Deal or No Deal” and “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” come from NBC Universal Domestic TV Distribution.

MyNet also announced a series of original specials, including “The 2009 World Music Awards,” “The 2009 World Magic Awards” and “The 2009 Hollywood Christmas Parade.”

“Smackdown” will launch its season Oct. 2 with the special showcase “Decade of Smackdown.”
