Smackdown staying put in current Friday time slot

The SyFy publicity team Twitter account sent a tweet yesterday announcing that season 5 of their show Haven will now be airing on Thursdays at 8PM EST, which was the time slot that Smackdown was supposed to take starting October 2.

PWInsider.com reported yesterday that Smackdown would be keeping its Friday time slot after SyFy changed their Fall schedule. The SyFy schedule on the website has not been updated to reflect the changes and still has Smackdown listed on Thursdays.

WWE had been promoting Smackdown on Thursdays on their production trucks and it was a move which was expected to happen until SyFy changed everything this week.

Keeping Smackdown on Friday will avoid going head-to-head against the NFL game which airs every Thursday at 8:25PM EST.
