If anything it's Smackdown that needs the star power etc. Both shows should be live and a 'super show' every week.

Also I think in terms of the midcard not getting TV time, well maybe they could give Smackdown superstars a chance to compete for the U.S. title and RAW superstars the IC title?

Maybe if WWE didn't puss out in the draft when it came to Cena, SD might've at least had more pep to it. There's also the spoilers that come before the show is aired. It's probably due to the production budget as to why they rarely air live SmackDown shows. Who knows?

It doesn't make a lot of sense. If the whole idea behind the SuperShow concept is to get people interested in watching, Smackdown needs the help more than Raw. It looks and feels like the B-show. Mixing the roster would at least give it some fresh matches to broadcast.

Why is Raw a supershow...

(1) Raw is in NEED of ratings. There are some shows/series coming up so they need all the star power they can get.

(2) SD stars need to be on live tv once in a while. we all know SD itself won't go permanent live anytime soon...so this is probably the next best alternative.

(3) they get to promote SD star even more.

(4) Raw is lacking huge starpower...atm they more or less have...
Cena - they understand people don't want to see cena 24/7 so thesedays he mostly shows up in second half of the show.
Punk - already got bunch of haters
Miz - not in mainevent unfortunately
ADR - isn't quite 100% established
HHH - isn't wrestling atm

Why isn't SD a supershow...

(1) for starters it isn't a live show

(2) a lot of people read spoilers. the point of supershow is to have a little bit of surprise factor like "oh wow this guy from another brand is here...nice i like it"

(3) ratings for SD aren't bad. they are within acceptable value for wwe.

(4) it's friday
