As usual, “WWE Smackdown” took its seat at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.
The USA wrestling series may have continued its lead, but its 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 marked a decline from the 0.7 it scored last week. Once again, its closest competitor was “The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo as it held at its constant 0.5. The third slot was occupied by another USA series, “Miz & Mrs.,” which remained steady at 0.4.
Outside the top 3, “Deadliest Catch” brought Discovery a 0.4, notching up from the 0.3 it sank to last week. “Hard Knocks” of HBO provided the network another 0.3, while “The Little Couple” on TLC recovered from 0.2 to 0.3. “Til Death Do Us Part” did the same at Investigation Discovery, and “Ink Master” of Paramount ascended beyond its usual 0.2 to 0.3.
The highest ranking 0.2 of the night came from “Growing Up Chrisley” on USA, which continued to struggle after dropping there last week. “Fixer Upper” grabbed a 0.2 for HGTV, while “Undercover Billionaire” on Discovery and “Hip Hop Squares” on VH1 pulled their own recurring 0.2’s. At Food Network, “Chopped” slipped from 0.3 to 0.2, as did “Supermarket Stakeout.” Finally, “Stay or Sell” premiered on HGTV at 0.2.
