Without the State of the Union to disturb the normal hierarchy, the Tuesday cable ratings were topped once again by “The Curse of Oak Island.”

The History Channel series broke through to the highest slot on the chart when it recovered to a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, up one-tenth of a point from the 0.7 it scored last week. This performance is all the more impressive considering the substantial challenge from the second place finisher, in which the Boston Celtics played the Philadelphia 76ers on TNT. The game received a 0.7 rating, which it shared with “WWE Smackdown” in third place. The USA wrestling series managed to improve on the 0.6 from its previous broadcast.

Other entries also returned to more normal placements on the chart. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” scored a 0.6 on Bravo, while TLC’s “I Am Jazz” remained at the 0.3 it fell to last week. OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” returned to 0.4 from 0.3, but “Married at First Sight” on Lifetime remained stable at 0.4. “Siesta Key” on MTV returned to the charts by ticking up from 0.3 to 0.4, and “Miracle Workers” on TBS premiered at 0.4.
