Thanks to my UPN affiliate picking up the MyNetwork feed and dumping the UPN feed a few weeks early, I'm totally screwed when it comes to seeing Smackdown! until my The CW station fires up. Of course, I will find some other way to see it (ahem) but I was just wondering who else is missing out.

By the way, while you still can, be sure to visit UPN's Smackdown! page ( and get some yuks over who is listed despite being on RAW or having been cut months ago.

That is a fine question. My (Los Angeles) UPN13 station dropped all mentions of "UPN" a few weeks ago, but they only started calling themselves "My13" last week. However, they did show Smackdown last week and I'm pretty sure I saw a "My13" logo in the bottom RH corner.

I think our WB ch.5 switches over to The New CW ch.5 on the 11th, so hopefully I wont have to go TOO long without *Smackdown.

Also, I wonder if WWE will do anything special with the "CW debut" episode of SD. Are all of the CW stations going "online" on the same day, or is it different in each market?

*Last week was the first time I remembered to watch SD in months, so I may not miss SD if they decide not to show it for a few weeks.

In Chicago, we are somewhat screwed. Smackdown is moving from WPWR 50 (Former UPN/New My Network) to WGN 9 (New CW). In the interim, it will be on Saturday night at 11:30 PM Central, instead of the usual 7:00 PM Central on Friday. Now, with Smackdown on the same station as the Cubs/White Sox/Bulls, it depends on the time the game and newscast ends. Those days, it could be a 10:00-10:30 start.

The only time Smackdown was delayed here on channel 50 was this March, when the IHSA boys and girls basketball tournaments were on. Smackdown was bumped to after the last game, which meant adding a few minutes at the end.

I didn't even think to check until I saw this post. I'm in the Detroit area and it looks like I'm still getting it. Instead of the UPN half being My-network'd, the WB half is.

Meltzer covered this a while back, and WWE had a link too:

This addresses Frosty's concerns, but not CRZ's, unfortunately.

My local station dropped its affiliation with UPN in June about a month after they found out that they wouldn't be the local CW affiliate.

The CW change has already happened in the Tidewater area, and I can still watch SmackDown every week.

Whether that's a blessing or a curse, you be the judge.

Don't we both get the same UPN/WB/CW? It' still on for me Saturday nights at 8PM. It's also still on the schedule:

Apparently it is becoming WQCW with this CW changeover.
