Smackdown Live! to FOX in 1 billion dollar deal: Fridays on FOX: WWE TV Rights Hot Fucking Stove

Quote:
Originally Posted by Darren Rovell at ESPN

WWE has agreed in principle to make Fox the new home of "SmackDown Live," after the network came to WWE with what sources described as a "massive" offer.

Specific terms, beyond the fact that the deal will begin in October 2019, are unknown at this time.

A representative for WWE declined to comment. A Fox spokesperson could not immediately be reached.

As first reported by the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, NBC Universal declined its right of first refusal to hit the numbers that WWE proposed on "SmackDown." NBC instead focused its efforts on "Monday Night Raw."

With live TV viewed as a prized commodity in the era of DVR and on-demand and "SmackDown Live" straddling the worlds of scripted and sports TV, Fox greatly valued the opportunity to pursue one of WWE's signature programs.

"SmackDown Live," which airs on Tuesdays, has averaged 2.59 million viewers per week in 2018, while "Raw" has averaged about 3 million viewers.

One of WWE's two weekly live broadcast shows, "SmackDown Live" has aired on NBC Universal networks since October 2010, first calling the SyFy network its home from 2010 to 2015 before debuting on the USA Network in January 2016. Before that, "SmackDown" aired on broadcast TV, starting in 1999 on UPN, followed by runs on the CW and My Network TV.

"Monday Night Raw" called USA Network home from 1993 to 2000 and returned there in October 2005 -- a run that carries through present day.

Since Thursday morning, when the Hollywood Reporter broke news of the opening of negotiations, WWE's stock, through 11:30 a.m. ET Monday, was up 19.1 percent.

It actually being on Fox and not a cable channel has to mean WWE is getting paid huge. Stock has already jumped $7 in the last hour.

Also, how pissed is Vince that he sold 3.34 million shares at $32 in December instead of today for $57. XFL could have got an extra $90 million to mess with.

According to the Hollywood Reporter the deal to air SDLive is for $205 million per year for five years -- it's a billion dollar deal for WWE. SD literally just became the new A-show, for reals.

I get the feeling that this will also impact SmackDown over here in the UK.

Right now we also get SmackDown live early on Wednesday morning but if it moves to Fridays on FOX, then one of three things will happen:

• It'll be live on Friday on FOX and the UK will also get it live early on Saturday morning.

• It'll be taped and shown on Friday on FOX and also shown here taped, also on Friday.

• It'll stay live and shown live over here like it is now, early on Wednesday mornings but be shown taped on FOX on Fridays.

I think the first outcome will really not do SmackDown any favours over here due to it's time and day of broadcast.

The second outcome will also be bad for SmackDown over here but not at much as the first outcome. I guess for people around my age it would kinda be a little nostalgia trip back to the days when Raw was shown on Friday nights but apart from that, it'll also be really unfair to UK fans that would now miss out on live SmackDown's because of the agreement between WWE and Fox.

The third outcome could happen but is really the less likely to happen. Another country getting something live whereas the country of the show's origin doesn't, just doesn't make any sense and would probably see a big rise of illegal streaming of SmackDown in the states.

So when you think about it, either way, this deal between WWE and Fox really screws over the UK if indeed SmackDown does move to Fridays.

Think Sky Sports have exclusive rights/first refusal on all WWE content. The US rights have nothing to do with how it airs elsewhere in the world.

The current UK deal runs to October 2019 so there’s every chance they’ll be shopping around. That said, they’ve been exclusive with Sky for the last 16 years, and only broke that exclusivity for 2 years to air Heat and 4 PPVs a year, so there’s only a slim chance of that changing.

FOX overpaid way too much for Smackdown considering before they were rumored to only be looking at $200+ million for both of WWE's shows. Then again same could be said for NBC and the rumored $300+ million per year deal for RAW.

Only real bright side is unlike last time, the wrestling tv market is now a lot more healthier which will help other companies when it comes to renewing or getting their own tv deals.

Also just realized Fox needs to be careful about their future programming. You got Smackdown locked in Fridays.

Any new shows they're considering might have to get sent over to FX or pull the trigger on cancellations sooner than expected. Fridays (and Saturdays too) are usually reserved for TV purgatory on some networks.

I was thinking that too, but from their perspective they are happy if they get a 2 rating on Friday night shows, so if Smackdown can pull a 3 rating I think they would be happy.

If anything, think WWE should be more worried considering FOX has shown they don't hesitate when it comes to pulling the plug on shows and deals if they don't think its performing well. Smackdown is leaving a very safe home for a new home that might not be as receptive in the long run for WWE's struggles.

NBC already did it before considering they used to show a bunch of WWE programming on the main network for a while like the Hall of Fame, Mania stuff, and Saturday Night's Main Event.

Well, I guess this means that FOX is going to be blacked out in Canada during SmackDown, as Rogers Media will not allow those here in Canada to watch the U.S. ads for the show.

I'm not Canadian but seems crazy they wouldn't just air ads for the Canada markets as opposed to U.S. ones. Is that not what's done by whoever airs RAW up there?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simultaneous_substitution

That will tell you how U.S. TV shows are aired in Canada, whether live or on tape.

That's how the TV world works here in Canada.

This is great. I think Tuesday was an okay day for Smackdown live but ultimately it was too much WWE too often. Putting the show on Friday is solid idea, I hope two things, that it stays live and it stays 2 hours.
