Syfy in the USA is moving their traditional scripted original shows from Friday nights to Tuesday nights, so come October Sanctuary will be on Tuesdays!  Why are they being moved? Friday Night Smackdown has been acquired by Syfy and that will air on Friday instead.

In my opinion it remains to be seen whether the niche "SciFriday" programmes will survive on Tuesdays. Whilst Syfy does tout the success of Warehouse 13 and Eureka on that night, those shows aired in the less contested summer period.
