Why is Smackdown not live on Fridays?

Why is smackdown not live on Fridays? I mean its taped on Tuesday and what not but why not have them just have it live on Friday, Imo it would make shit better and there wouldn't be this retarded fake cheers/boo crap. If they had it live on Friday or atleast have the show TAPED earlier like earlier on Friday or something, then people would probably watch smackdown more and not just look up spoilers, I know alot of peeps hate smackdown to for the simple fact of the fake booes and cheers.

last question do they not have it live friday night because wrestlers wana chill on fridays or something? Idk fill me in guys

If its live then they cannot do DAT Audio Editing and control how the crowd reacts.

And they don't chill on fridays they are usually going to house shows or some public charity or marketing event or on an airplane somewhere.

Re: Why is smackdown not live on Fridays?

Typically, the WWE only has Wednesday and Thursday off, some Fridays but they do house shows then and into the weekend and if they go on overseas tours it's like every day.

They would have to restructure things to air live Smackdown on Friday.

Best hope is that they go live on Tuesdays but that will likely never happen because the WWE as saturated as it is, they feel that Smackdown does better on Fridays then it would live Tuesday every week due to Raw the night before.

-The attendance would be worse than TNA
-Almost everyone won't come out to huge pops(edited sounds).Instead they will come to total silence.

the difference in cost between a live show and taped show is vast

Yessir. JR elaborated on this a while ago IIRC. Said doing two live shows a week would be difficult.

Re: Why is smackdown not live on Fridays?

Well I've heard the reason behind it is because it would be too hard like the guy above me posted. Also it costs a lot of money to run to live shows a week.

Re: Why is smackdown not live on Fridays?

The rating for Smackdown (and therefore the revenue) is too low to warrant the extravagant cost of doing a live show on a weekly basis. Plus they're busy with house shows on Friday nights, as someone above said.

Re: Why is smackdown not live on Fridays?

Another simple factor: If you build a stage on Monday, and tape a second show on Tuesday, you have the rest of the week for houseshows around the country, no restrictions. If you do same show live on Friday, you need to have another arena supporting the stageset, you have to build shit again and you are more limited as to where the house shows go (must stick to taping area kinda)
