All of this likely explains why there is nothing announced for tonight's show. At the time of this post, nothing has been announced on for SmackDown.

This is not a new occurrence but this does not line up with Vince McMahon's plan to have better writing on the show. During the last investor conference call, McMahon acknowledged that some changes were needed and he said that the writing would improve.
