Saw this on PWInsider:
The buzz at WWE's home offices in Stamford, CT today was that the company's programming will dominate the USA prime time schedule in the week leading up to the Christmas holiday.

In its usual spot, Raw will anchor the evening on 12/20. No big deal there. However, the Christmas Eve edition of Smackdown is going to air live on USA on Tuesday 12/21 from 9 to 11 p.m. This is a brilliant move and will benefit both parties. USA will get an original show that will probably do a better rating in the key demos than their regular programming while WWE will get more eyeballs watching their show. Obviously, a lot fewer people will be watching Smackdown in its normal Friday slot since that is Christmas Eve.

On Wednesday 12/22, a two hour version of the NBC Tribute To The Troops show is slated to air from 8 to 10 p.m.
I've checked the schedules on USA's site and don't see anything different, but of course this hasn't been made official yet. If it's true, I think it'll be awesome, and a good move by WWE and USA.
