First, the good news: Smackdown has been extended in a multi-year deal with the UPN network.

Now, the bad news: The multi-year deal is with the UPN network, which could fold or lose most of its channels within the next year. I guess this means the idea of going on FOX is dead.

But, it could be worse. They could be going on the WB.



I'll pay $49.95 for the Execute Bin Laden PPV. And I'll buy one of the lottery tickets at 10 bucks a pop to be the executioner.

Our UPN station here in Minneapolis just changed affiliates (traded with the local FOX affiliate), going from Old Channel 9 to Old Channel 29, hopefully that isn't a sign that they're planning on dropping it soon.

UPN merged with our FOX station here in Jax, so I've been watching Smackdown at 11 P.M. Thursday nights on FOX for the last 7 or so months.

They'd talked about doing that for years because Channel 9 fits better with the "Big Networks" on 4, 5, and 11. Channel 29 is more out of the way and a better fit for the "more out of the way" UPN.

Also, it's the same way within the cable channels.

I don't see what the bad thing would be about the WB, since the WB has crap on Thursday nights. WB is guaranteed more teens on a Thursday, and WWE has a place to survive other than Monday nights.

If they go to the WB, the old Turner/Time Warner/AOL censorship rules that WCW had to deal with go into full effect.

I have seen parts of that myself. Considering the quality of most angles in the WWE in the last two years alone, well, they had plenty of evidence to work with, that's for sure.
