WWE Finds Replacement For myNetworkTV

These are supposed to be WWE superstars or so it said.

These are supposed to be WWE superstars or so it said.

Our old friends at PWTorch.com had a breaking news story about WWE and WGN striking a deal to broadcast a new show starting in 2009 a few days ago. Why are we just now getting to it? Well, we are all insanely busy and popular and don’t have to answer questions like tat so, screw.

WWE, who is still on a nostalgia kick, has named the show “Superstars” in the thin attempt to market their lackluster roster as such. Let’s be honest though; this new show is nothing more than tryout period for WWE on WGN. If it goes well they will pull Smackdown in a heart beat as their current network sinks faster than a Russian sub in the Barents Sea.

The move to myNetwork TV was such a bad idea that the fledgling network’s only highly rated show is Smackdown. It has no other marketable shows and no sports coverage to speak of. It gets no penetration in some major markets and when it does no one knows where to find it. It was a ridiculously bad move to change a highly rated program on a failing network for another network with a horrible name but then it is WWE and their decision making over the last, oh, four years has been suspect.

Seriously, they moved to a network that plays a C.O.P.S. rip-off and glorifies “movie of the week” broadcasts. This wouldn’t be so bad if the movie of the week was an actual Hollywood movie and not a piece of shit made on a camcorder with the locals and then digitally enhanced to make it look real like it was filmed on film.  Trust me,I would know. -Jeremy

    To be honest, a move to WGN wouldn’t be that much better than MyNetwork. Neither has a lot of penetration.

    Plus I heard MyNetwork would be picking up some baseball coverage, which means Smackdown would be pre-empted again like it would on the CW.

    Ummm Jeremy, the CW canceled Smackdown so it was their bonehead move that caused this.

      Yeah I know but if WWE really wanted to remain on that network they could have worked it out. Know what I mean? it didn’t have to come to this bleak place known as MyNetwork blahcrapblah.

    I love MyTvNetwork…I watch 1 show on it, just like I did CW.

    Hey B-Esser, like on CW, the baseball coverage would be in local markets.

    I think we should just take a step back and admit that the CW will be gone after the season and WWE leaving is why. Their numbers have fallen to below half of what they were before.

    Does anyone think it is possible that maybe in the long run ECW could be moved to the new show, and SmackDown went to Sci-Fi?
