Tuesday cable ratings: ‘Queen Sugar’ and ‘Atlanta’ get off to good starts

queen-sugar-premiere-ratings-sept-6-16

Two new series got off to pretty good starts Tuesday: “Queen Sugar” finished in the Top 10 on cable among adults 18-49 with a 0.7 on OWN, while FX’s “Atlanta” scored a 0.5 in the demo.

“Queen Sugar’s” demo rating was off 0.2 from that of its lead-in, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” which tied Discovery’s “Harley and the Davidsons” and a pair of “Family Guy” reruns on Adult Swim for No. 1 on the night.

“Atlanta’s” 0.5 is on par with the premieres of “Archer” and “Baskets” earlier this year and is at the upper end of typical same-day ratings for FX comedies. Elsewhere Tuesday, “WWE Smackdown” (0.8) slipped 0.1 week to week, and “Chrisley Knows Best” posted a 0.7 for USA.
