USA’s “WWE Smackdown” fought its way to the top in the Tuesday cable ratings this week, and after taking a minor hit last week, was able to tick back up from a 0.8 to a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, The History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” continued to perform well for the network with a 0.8, just one-tenth lower than its previous 0.9.

Following its series premiere last week as well, FX’s Tom Hardy-led “Taboo” fell two-tenths from a 0.6 to a 0.4. This is a to be expected second-week drop off for a new series, though, as “Taboo” still managed to rake in a modest 1.12 million viewers.

A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology & The Aftermath” had a minor dip this week also, breaking its 0.6 streak with a 0.5 this time around.
