It was The History Channel’s “The Curse of Oak Island” that took the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings this week, after ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.8 to a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. Despite taking a hit last week as well, USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Smackdown” followed closely behind and managed to rise from a 0.7 to a 0.8 this time around.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” rounded out the Top 3 of the night with its season 8 premiere scoring a 0.6. This was just one-tenth less than the 0.7 that its season 7 finale had raked in earlier this year. Meanwhile, MTV’s “The Challenge: Champs vs Stars” found its way back into the Top 25 by ticking up from a 0.3 to a 0.4.
