In addition to Smackdown moving to Thursday starting in January, WWE NXT will also be moving to Wednesday night according to WWE Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer Michelle Wilson in an article by Variety. Wilson also talked further about the Smackdown move.
“Quite simply, more young men watch television on Thursday night than on Fridays. WWE’s sizable and passionate fan base make ‘SmackDown’ the No. 1 entertainment show on Syfy and the most-watched, regularly-scheduled program among key demographics on the network. We look forward to bringing the WWE audience to Thursday nights on Syfy.”
