    Get on USA. Beats having countless marathons of SVU and NCIS all the time.

  2. Nick A says:

    I can’t imaging SyFy giving up their number one rated show.

  3. James says:

    If syfy does give up their only decent show these days. Smackdown should go right to USA network.

  4. Mighty says:

    Unless someone else wants the show more!

  5. Kyle Christie says:

    If it goes to USA I hope they make it on Tuesdays. Makes my weekend a lot better.

    I thought syfy was just another nbc universal owned network like USA. What’s the difference if it’s on one or another? Not sure why this was a report this should have been known when it was reported that syfy picked up smackdown. Just like with Raw the weekly smackdown is at times not must see tv. I think it would be cool if they stopped broadcasting it weekly. And made a deal with NBC to run saturday night smackdown the saturday before every ppv. They worry about their ppv buys yet they’ve been running the same business model for over a decade. I’m probably just pining for the days of my youth when Saturday Night was wrestling night period.
