This week, “WWE Smackdown” reclaimed the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.

All it took was a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 for the USA wrestling series to ascend to its former spot, building on its previous 0.7. This marked the end of a two-week stretch in second place. “The Curse of Oak Island” on History Channel was pushed there instead, failing to match the WWE’s increase and remaining at 0.7 itself. Rounding out the top 3 was “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Bravo, moving up from fourth place with an increase of one-tenth of a point in viewership.

Further down the chart, USA’s “Mis & Mrs.” managed to hold onto the 0.4 it premiered at, while “Deadliest Catch” debuted a new season on Discovery at 0.4. Both of Comedy Central’s strongest Tuesday performers, “Tosh.0” and “The Daily Show,” grabbed their usual respective 0.3 and 0.2, a feat matched by “Chopped” on Food Network with its own 0.3. “Growing Up Chrisley” on USA also held at 0.3.
