Talking Smack airing on FS1 after WWE SmackDown next week


Talking Smack will be airing at 10 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, October 29 on FS1 according to multiple cable providers listings. 

SmackDown will also air on FS1 that night, as Fox will air game three of the MLB World Series. A SmackDown replay will air at 11 p.m. Eastern time, meaning a five-hour block of WWE programming on the network. 

The one-hour Talking Smack will go head-to-head with AEW Rampage on TNT. 

The precedent for this move was set last year, as WWE also aired an hour of Talking Smack following an FS1 SmackDown on the same night Fox aired game three of the World Series. 

Talking Smack usually drops on Saturday mornings on Peacock and the WWE NEtwork. 

SmackDown also aired on FS1 this past Friday due to the MLB playoffs airing on Fox. WWE ran an extra thirty minutes of the show commercial-free from 10 to 10:30 p.m., anchored by a Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks match, plus a Crown Jewel Universal Championship match contract signing featuring Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
