It was a mostly steady night in the Tuesday cable ratings this week.

USA’s “WWE Smackdown” led the night again with the same 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 as it had scored a week ago. Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterreanean” followed closely behind with another 0.5, as did MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” (0.5), both of which were even with their previous episodes.

On TBS, “Wrecked” slipped one-tenth week-to-week from a 0.4 to a 0.3, while “Miz & Mrs.” continued its recent 0.5 streak. After taking a minor hit last week, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” also held steady with a 0.4. The season 3 premiere of “Greenleaf” raked in a 0.4 as well, down a tenth from its second season premiere last year, but even with its finale.

Outside of the top 25, TV Land’s “Younger” finished off its fifth season in steady fashion, scoring the same 0.2 it had maintained throughout most of the season.
