It was a predictably quiet night in the Tuesday cable ratings this week with multiple shows taking the week off thanks to the Fourth of July holiday. USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Smackdown” led the night, scoring a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row on the network, with 2.32 million viewers tuning in. ESPN2’s broadcast of “Great American Events” followed closely behind with a 0.5.

On The Discovery Channel,  a special episode of “Deadliest Catch” landed in the top 3 of the night with a 0.3, two-tenths lower than its previous 0.5 last week. Meanwhile, ESPN scored a number of spots in the top 25 throughout the night, with the network’s coverage of the Boston vs Texas and Pirates vs Phillies MLB Holiday games both scoring 0.2s.
