“WWE Smackdown” maintained its spot atop the Tuesday cable ratings once again this week, with the USA broadcast scoring a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. This was, however, one-tenth lower than the 0.9 “Smackdown” had scored the week before. As usual, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” followed closely behind as well, and held steady with a 0.7 for the second week in a row. Just outside of the Top 25, The Discovery Channel’s “Manhunt: Unabomber” maintained its previous 0.3.

Also on The Discovery Channel, “Deadliest Catch” ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6 this time around, while A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4. On USA, “Shooter” managed to break its recent 0.3 streak and rose to a 0.4 with its penultimate episode.  Meanwhile, the season finale of TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” rounded out the show’s second season with yet another 0.4 rating.
