WWE SmackDown, also known as SmackDown Live or simply SmackDown, is a professional wrestling television program that debuted on August 26 1999. The show's name is also used to refer to the SmackDown brand, in which WWE employees are assigned to work and perform on that program, the other programs and brands currently being Raw and NXT. It is currently broadcast live on Tuesday nights on the USA Network and has been broadcast from 162 different arenas in 147 cities and towns in seven different nations including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Iraq in 2006 and 2007 for Tribute to Troops, Japan in 2005, Italy in 2007 and Mexico in 2011. Due to differences, SmackDown premieres a few hours ago earlier in Ireland and the United Kingdom and a day earlier in Australia, Singapore and Philippines than the United States, except for live episodes.
