SyFy wants to keep two shows together...
- There have been many rumors as of late regarding a move for WWE Smackdown to Thursday from Friday on the SyFy channel, but why the change? F4WOnline.com reports that SyFy wants to continue airing its original drama Haven, which features former WWE Superstar Edge, after Smackdown in order to better monetize the wrestling fan audience.
Actor Eric Balfour previously announced that Haven is confirmed to be moving to Thursday at 10PM EST instead of its original timeslot of Friday at 10PM. The show's fifth season premieres on September 11. Since Haven is already moving, SyFy would like to keep airing the shows together and broadcast Haven after Smackdown.
