The series premiere of ‘The New Edition Story’ scored the top spot in Tuesday’s cable ratings. Raking in a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 with 4.2 million viewers, the debut gave BET its highest-rated premiere in five years.

The History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” followed quickly behind with a 1.o, two-tenths higher than its previous 0.8, while “WWE Smackdown” maintained its 0.9 for the second week in a row. On FX, the Tom Hardy-led “Taboo” managed to hold steady with a 0.4 for the network, after taking a noticeable hit in the week before.

Just outside the Top 100, Season 2 of “Outsiders” premiered to a 0.3 in adults 18-49 and 932,000 viewers, equaling its series premiere and Season 1 average in the demo. It was up vs. its first-season average of 821,000 viewers.

The premiere and three replays brought in a cumulative 1.71 million viewers (up from 1.51 million for premiere night last year) and 776,000 in WGN America’s target audience of adults 25-54 (up from 643,000). WGN America and TV by the Numbers are both owned by Tribune Media.
