The SyFy ::giggle:: Channel is changing its schedule to accommodate a new deal for WWE’s Smackdown.
Yes, science fiction fans, you can now restart that RPG night you’d blown off on Friday nights to watch your favorite original science fiction programming. The SyFy Friday slate of shows are apparently moving to Tuesdays, come this fall.
The Twitter-verse (and I’m sure many other online sites) are already in an uproar. But Airlock Alpha seems to think this will give them the profit margin they’ll need to pay for their less-viewed original programming.
But if schedules stay the same on the main networks, that will put them up against the ratings stalwarts NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, American Idol and Glee. Not entirely sure how that will help the situation.
