The WWF has it's schedule up through May, and has no live dates for Smackdown... has anyone heard if there are plans to go live with SD?

Personally, I live the live shows better... I always feel like they hold back major happenings from the taped shows (I don't think Jericho will be winning that title back next week).

Of course, Orton just debuted on Smackdown... maybe they're going to start putting bigger things on SD. If so, I'll have to stay away from here between Tuesday and Thursday, because I hate having shows spoiled...

Come to think of it, will everyone here be able to avoid giving away the outcome of that match next week? I doubt it.

The original plan was to do a both RAW and Smackdown house shows on Thursdays (with the Smackdown crew running against itself on TV on Thursday nights).

Of course somebody realized "Hey that's stupid" and the choice was either to make the Tuesday show a house show with the live Smackdown on Thursday, but I think they've dropped the idea of a Thursday house show all together, so whatever.

I love to get the spoilers, don't get me wrong, it's great not having to wait, but I would love it more than a fat chick likes the hardy boyz(www.lethalwrestling.com/fcwhb), if Smackdown! would be live. Hey, it doesn't seem right that Raw is and Smackdown isn't. Who knows, if the ratings start tanking, they probably won't have much of a choice.
They could and have used it as a promotional standpoint, so it would be a better way to increase ratings. I also think the mainstream marks don't really know that Smackdown is taped on Tuesdays, the WWF never mentions it on their upcoming shows ads, they just say that they're in Whatevertown(which close to Dudleyville) on Tuesday.

Don't the taped shows get higher ratings? I think I had heard that somewhere when they did a couple live Smackdowns (I think it was a year or two ago though, I'm trying to remember something Meltzer said on that e-yada show).

People will watch if they know something cool will happen. Look at Mick Foley's title win. When WCW spoiled it BIG TIME (more-so that the net could EVER hope to do) by broadcasting it, people switched over by the truckload.

Rating's tanking won't make the show go live. It'll just get it cancelled.

If I had to travel as much as RVD I would want to be stoned too. I only saw one of his ECW matches against Jerry Lynn (the PPV headlined by Corino / Storm.) It's light years away from what he's doing in WWE.
