Yet again, USA’s “WWE Smackdown” landed on top in the Tuesday cable ratings this week, after maintaining a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. Like last week as well, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” followed closely behind and managed to keep its recent 0.6 streak going. On Bravo, “Below Deck Mediterranean” rose one-tenth the 0.5 it scored last week to a 0.6 this time around. “Forged in Fire” found its way into the Top 5 of the night also, and held steady with a 0.5 on The History Channel.

Following its series premiere last week, The Discovery Channel’s original “Manhunt: Unabomber” mini-series aired its third of five total episodes last night and took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3. Meanwhile, both TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” (0.4) and USA’s “Shooter” (0.3) managed to maintain their previous ratings this week, respectively.
