'SmackDown' entering the Syfy ring


World Wrestling Entertainment is moving its Friday Night SmackDown series to cable: Syfy will air the series starting Oct. 1 because its current home, MyNetworkTV, decided to end its contract. Syfy also is moving original series such as Stargate Universe, Sanctuary and Caprica from Fridays to Tuesdays, when viewing levels are higher, and in turn will drop WWE's new NXT series, now being shopped to other cable outlets. SmackDown, a top Friday draw among young men, premiered in 1999 on UPN; Syfy sibling USA airs WWE's Raw.



[NOTE: Syfy's sister station, USA, also moved their Friday night series last year to other nights. From reading the above article, I would surmise the move would occur in October 2010 as the series begin their new seasons.]
