The Tuesday cable ratings were returned to a more regular order this week, with “WWE Smackdown” returning once again to the peak slot of the chart.
The USA wrestling series was able to accomplish this by holding onto the same 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 it scored last week, which was enough to lift it from second place. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was forced to fall back from first to second place in its stead when it lost one-tenth of a point and landed at 0.5. Finally, a College World Series Baseball game between the Michigan and Vanderbilt teams secured an additional 0.5 on ESPN.
Outside the chart’s elite top slots, “Chrisley Knows Best” brought in a 0.5 for USA, coming in above the 0.4 it grabbed last week. This meant that it rose beyond the 0.4’s picked up by “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery and “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on VH1. “The Haves and the Have Nots” on OWN tumbled from 0.4 to 0.3, meanwhile, as did “Outdaughtered” on TLC.
They were met at 0.3 by repeat performers “Animal Kingdom” of TNT, “The Detour” of TBS, “Good Bones” of HGTV, and “Sweet Home Sextuplets” of TLC. Down at 0.2, “Chopped” of Food Network matched its score from last week, as did “Ink Master” on Paramount. The latter show managed to remain on the chart in the twenty-fifth slot, proving luckier than FX’s “Pose” and OWN’s “Ambitions,” both of which dropped just below it.
