Re: Why is smackdown not live on Fridays?

Though I agree going live doesn't make financial sense, attendance for a live Friday show would be much better than right now, because people can go out on Friday nights, and would be more excited to be there when its aired live.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

The ratings are low because nothing exciting ever happens on Smackdown.
