Up until SmackDown's move to SyFy and the win at Bragging Rights, Friday Night Smackdown was considered WWE's "B" show but I quite enjoy it. Some times even more than Monday Night Raw.
Smackdown's GM is Theodore Long and his official consultant is Vickie Guerrero.
From its launch in 1999, SmackDown broadcast on Thursday nights, but as of September 9, 2005, the show moved to Friday nights.
The show originally debuted in the United States on the UPN television network on August 26, 1999, but after the merger of UPN and the WB, SmackDown began airing on The CW in 2006.
The show remained on the CW network for two years until it was announced that it would move to MyNetworkTV in October 2008.
SmackDown has now moved to Syfy since October 2010.
