Without a special episode of the “Rachel Maddow Show” to overtake it, “WWE Smackdown” landed on top in the Tuesday cable ratings this week, maintaining a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row on USA. Meanwhile, a special episode of “Fixer Upper” followed behind on the HOME network with a 0.7.

“If Loving You is Wrong” returned on OWN with its season 3 premiere as well, scoring a 0.5. This was two-tenths lower than the season 2 premiere last year, which scored a 0.7, but was fairly in line with the show’s more recent numbers. On MTV, “The Challenge: Invasion” held steady with a 0.5 once again, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” scored a 0.7.

ESPN’s weekly NBA basketball coverage raked in 0.5 and 0.4 ratings throughout the night for the network, and “The Detour” continued its recent 0.4 streak on TBS.
