USA stayed on top in the Tuesday cable ratings this week with its broadcast of “WWE Smackdown,” which scored a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was one-tenth higher than the 0.8 that the series had scored the week before. OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” followed closely behind with a 0.7, which experienced a similar one-tenth rise from its previous 0.6 rating. The Discovery Channel’s “Manhunt: Unabomber” landed just outside of the Top 25 this week, but held steady with a 0.3 once again.

Following its season 2 premiere last week, A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” scored a 0.5 for the second week in a row on the network. Meanwhile, both USA’s “Shooter” (0.3) and TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” managed to maintain their previous ratings.
