Sports entertainment just got a little more exciting. For the first time ever, fans will be able to watch SmackDown LIVE each week on USA Network. The second longest-running weekly episodic program in U.S. television history, SmackDown will air live every week beginning July 19 from 8-10PM ET/PT. The move to live will also shift SmackDown to Tuesdays from its previously-scheduled Thursday night slot on USA Network.
With the SmackDown move, USA Network will now offer five hours of live WWE programming a week, including the weekly three-hour live WWE Monday Night Raw (airing Mondays from 8-11PM ET/PT).
Check out the trailer for the new original drama SHOOTER, starring Ryan Phillippe, which will air directly after SmackDown starting July 19.
