Without Shark Week or any Democratic Debates to get in the way, “WWE Smackdown” was able to reclaim its spot at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.

The USA wrestling series accomplished this mostly by default, however; without any major competition, it was able to capture first place simply by remaining at the 0.6 it dropped to last week. This was enough to keep it ahead of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” as it premiered a new season at 0.4 on Bravo, down from the 0.5 of its previous season premiere. USA came back with “Miz & Mrs.” to round out the top 3, rising from 0.3 to 0.4.

Further along, “Deadliest Catch” returned from a Shark Week-induced hiatus to resume at 0.4. On VH1, “Black Ink Crew Chicago” held at 0.4, while “Hard Knocks” premiered at 0.3 on HBO. Discovery debuted “Undercover Billionaire” at a respectable 0.3, which was once again the domain of TNT’s “Animal Kingdom.” Other 0.3’s came from “Til Death Do Us Part” on Investigation Discovery, “Chopped” on Food Network, “Growing Up Chrisley” on USA, and “House Hunters” on HGTV.

Elsewhere, “Good Bones” of HGTV crumbled from its usual 0.3 to 0.2, falling into the company of the season premiere of “The Little Couple” on TLC. “House Hunters International” on HGTV and “Intervention” on A&E also brought in 0.2’s, as did the consistent “Ink Master” on Paramount, “Web of Lies” on Investigation Discovery, and “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. Both “The Detour” on TBS and “Ex on the Beach” on MTV had a rough night, each falling from 0.3 to 0.2.
