Re: Smackdown Timeslot
But 8-10pm would be 5-7pm in the west coast. Which is a BIG reason why I think the later the better. 9-11 would mean 6-8. Much better chance of getting west coast viewers. As of now, for Raw too, 2 hours of the show doesn't even air in primetime on the west coast(California alone with 38M people). So the fact that Raw is airing LIVE during a time where majority of that 38M isn't even watching TV, will hurt overall ratings. Shows on CBS,Fox and stuff air 8-10pm local time. So if a show airs for you at 8pm on Monday, it'll air 8pm on a Monday anywhere whether it be in New York or LA. WWE on the other hand airs 8-11pm(for Raw) LIVE. Imagine if it just aired 8-11pm local time. Ratings would be much bigger for sure.
