— WWE SmackDown! will be preempted on 4 Fridays in the coming months in New York. The New York Mets have released their broadcast schedule for 2008, and this year, for the last time on CW11 New York, Smackdown will be preempted on 4 Fridays this year on the following dates: 4/18, 6/27, 7/11 and 9/5. SmackDown’s new home, MyNetworkTV, also airs New York Yankee games on Friday nights. There has been talk that SmackDown! will be moved to Thursday nights once they switch networks but if they remain on Friday nights, preemptions may continue to be an issue in New York.
