However, Variety also hinted that News Corp.â<80><99>s MyNetwork TV could be in the running for the series. Obviously Friday Night SmackDown would be the highest rated show on MyNetwork TV but it would have to be considered a huge set backwards for WWE.
If WWE is able to get SmackDown under their current deal with NBC Universal, the USA Network, Bravo, and the Sci-Fi Channel would be the top networks in the running. NBC and MSNBC would be the other options but would be long-shots for obvious reasons. If SmackDown doesnâ<80><99>t fall under WWEâ<80><99>s current deal with NBC Universal or NBC Universal lets WWE shop the show with other networks, there could be several other possibilities.
