Few things can prevent “WWE Smackdown” from taking the top slot of the Tuesday cable ratings, and none of them were present last night.

The USA wrestling series consolidated its grip on that first place spot with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. This was a notch higher than the 0.6 it scored last week, and more than enough to keep it abreast of all its competition.

The nearest threat came from “The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo, which also improved on its previous score, rising from 0.4 to 0.5. Finally, the third slot was seized by the ascendant “Animal Kingdom” of TNT as it fought its way from what is usually a reliable 0.3 to 0.4.

Further along the chart, “Deadliest Catch” brought in a second consecutive 0.4 for Discovery Channel. The same could be said for “Miz & Mrs.” on USA, while both “Undercover Billionaire” on Discovery and “Hard Knocks” on HBO rose from 0.3 to 0.4. “Til Death Do Us Part” on Investigation Discovery continued at 0.3, while TLC’s “Little Couple” managed to upgrade from 0.2 to 0.3.

Elsewhere, “Good Bones” of HGTV continued at the 0.2 it fell to last week, keeping pace with “House Hunters” on the same network as it fell from 0.3 to 0.2. “Growing Up Chrisley” also fell, bringing USA a 0.2 instead of its usual 0.3, a fate it shared with Food Network’s “Chopped.”

“Supermarket Stakeout” premiered with another 0.2 for Food Network, finding itself in the company of the consistent 0.2’s of “Intervention” on A&E, “House Hunters International” on HGTV, and “Web of Lies” on Investigation Discovery.
