    NEW YORK – August 18, 2011 – Syfy and WWE announced today its first ever WWE SmackDown live special, “SuperSmackdown Live,” on Tuesday, August 30 at 8-10PM/ET on Syfy, originating from the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.

    The Tuesday night special will feature WWE’s biggest Superstars and Divas, including World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton®, Christian®, Sheamus™, Mark Henry®, Sin Cara™, Cody Rhodes™, Wade Barrett™, Daniel Bryan™, Brodus Clay™, Natalya™ and Alicia Fox™.

    The special will re-air in SmackDown’s regular time slot on Friday, September 2 from 8-10PM (ET/PT).

It's Brodus ClayTM! That's huge news!

They are pretty clearly telling us this is Smackdown only, not a combined Supershow.

Is there any special reason for doing this?

I find it hard to believe A SuperSmackdown Live Show would not have special guest appearances by John Cena®, Undisputed WWE Champion Alberto Del RioTM, CM Punk®, The MizTM, Divas Champion Kelly KellyTM, and of course, the Chief Operating Officer of WWE Triple HTM.

I am thinking that maybe the official start to the Fall TV line-up ie sweeps week. Yet, I always thought it was the week after Labor Day or Labor Day week or whenever they hold the Emmys.

"Seeing if live vs. taped matters for ratings" is usually the canned response (it usually hasn't mattered in the past), although I believe it will be more like "see if the audience manages to figure out and remember that we're airing a different day" - I still give myself a 50/50 chance of rememebring, although my desire to livetweet it SHOULD help me remember to tune in...probably. Maybe.

The 'official' reason is to avoid people missing show due to the labor day holiday.

I looked on The Score's website - no news if it'll be on live in Canada, too.

And I was right, as per the commercial that aired during RAW. It's a dual branded live special.

I truly hope this is the real reason, no matter what the "official" reason is. It seems like a win-win for both companies, as Tuesday is a much more viewed night for TV than Friday, and UFC looks like they are doing enough gimmick things with TUF to possibly get them a big Friday night audience.

No matter what people say about the live vs taped debate, I know that I myself would be much more likely to watch or DVR Smackdown on Tuesday than on Friday (I used to DVR SD, but I stopped that about a year ago and haven't watched SD regularly since).

According to the Score inserts on Smackdown last night, it will be. It's listed in my on-screen guide, too.

Apparently the inserts also listened to that Smackdown sign that told Renee to shut up ;)



Shut up, Josh!

I laughed when I saw that sign on RAW - but the timing sucked, since Arda Ocal was taking over her duties for the week as she was on vacation.

That was the weirdest show. The booking was all over the place. Also, I wonder how many people just tuned out five minutes into the show when Regal put the lights out.
