By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- MyNetworkTV has finalized its 2009-10 season plans as the fledgling broadcast network will lean on repeats instead of originals this fall.

Said lineup includes the off-network runs of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" on Mondays and "The Unit" on Wednesdays as well as rebroadcasts of the syndicated incarnations of "Deal or No Deal" and "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" on Tuesdays.

Rounding out the week then are movies on Thursdays and its "WWE Smackdown!" franchise on Fridays. Saturdays, as previously announced, are being returned to the network's affiliates.

The announcement spells the end of its original offerings, which include "Under One Roof," "Vice Squad," "The Tony Rock Project," "Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed," "Masters of Illusion," "World's Funniest Moments," "Celebrity Expose," "Jail" and "Street Patrol."

Here's a night-by-night breakdown of the aforementioned schedule:
