History Channel conquered the Tuesday night cable ratings with a little help from “Curse of Oak Island.” The reality series took home a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, which was enough to beat every other broadcast, even if it did represent a drop-off of one-tenth from the previous airing.

Meanwhile, the WWE and USA came in second, holding onto gains from last week at 0.7, though this was obviously not quite enough to overtake “Curse of Oak Island.” Rounding out the triad at the top was “The Haves and the Have Nots” on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which managed to rank third despite only scoring a 0.4.

Elsewhere, the night was fairly slow. “The Rachel Maddow Show” lost just a bit of steam on MSNBC and stumbled to 0.4 itself, while A&E’s “Body Cam” kept the 0.4 it rose to last week. History’s new series “Project Blue Book” suffered a dip down to 0.3 from the 0.4 it premiered at. Many political shows, like “Anderson Cooper 360” on CNN and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” on MSNBC similarly fell, dropping from 0.4 to 0.3.
