Update On The First Friday Night Smackdown, WWE Stock, & More

– The WWE stock was up $1.39 at 10:23 this morning and has been hovering around a dollar over yesterday's close for most of the day.

– WWE.com has yet to update who will be the guest on tonight's edition of Byte This.

– The UPN affiliate in New York/New Jersey (WWOR) will be showing the New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox game on Friday night, during Smackdown s time slot. On Saturday, the channel will air the "Shelter From The Storm" benefit concert for the Gulf Coast at 8pm, and will then air the one-hour Smackdown at 9pm before the local news starts at 10pm. UPN affiliates who preempt the concert and Smackdown on Friday will likely do the same thing.
