WWF Smackdown! LIVE On UPN TONIGHT!

The WWF gives a big BS spiel about this being due to the anticipation of last night's ending, and how they don't want to make the fans have to wait 2 more days. The truth is, UPN (which is owned by Viacom, just like MTV) wanted less competition on the Thursday night slate when the MTV VMA's are LIVE from NYC ...

So, 8:00pm (EST) TONIGHT, LIVE ...

I figured the VMAs had something to do with SmackDown moving to Tuesday this week.

Ah, they spin things as well as politicians do, don't they Soup? Of course it's because of the VMAs. [sarcasm on] That ending last night was so shocking, I just have to watch tonight [sarcasm off] .

Actually, it wasnt that UPN was worried, it was at MTV's request. According to Zap2it.com, MTV wanted to get a larger male audience and asked UPN to move Smackdown!, which they happily obliged since they are all owned by the same mega-corporation.
