Last night proved to be yet another solid outing for “WWE Smackdown” too. The weekly USA broadcast not only held onto the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings, but also managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 0.8 to a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. The History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” followed closely behind with another 0.7 and 3.016 million viewers.

It was a similar story for HOME’s “Fixer Upper” as well, with the series rising one-tenth to a 0.6. The same could not be said, however, for “The Haves and the Have Nots,” which took a small hit this week. Despite ticking up last week, the OWN original series dropped two-tenths from a 0.6 to a 0.4.

Meanwhile, the series premiere of USA’s true crime anthology, “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.,” landed in the Top 3 of the night with a 0.7 and 1.60 million viewers. This was fairly high compared to some of the other original series that have premiered on the network in recent years.

Elsewhere in the night, TBS’ “The Detour” held steady with a 0.4, while Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” ticked up two-tenths from a 0.5 to a 0.7. On MTV, “The Challenge: Vendettas” was able to maintain its previous 0.5 yet again.
