The Tuesday cable ratings were once again dominated by “WWE Smackdown.”

The USA wrestling returned from the second slot to the first this week, building on its previous 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 to rise all the way to a 0.7. This was enough for it to elbow its way past “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” which itself maintained a 0.6 for Bravo. “Chrisley Knows Best” acquired another spot in the top 3 for USA simply by holding onto its 0.4 from last week.

Elsewhere, “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery brought home yet another 0.4. A notch below, at 0.3, TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” stayed even with its recent pace, and was joined by MTV’s “Ex on the Beach,” returning at 0.3 for the first time since April.

On VH1, “Black Ink Crew Chicago” took a minor hit from 0.4 to 0.3, where it fell amongst “Good Bones” on HGTV, “The Detour” on TBS, and “Outdaughtered” on TLC. Each of the aforementioned series’ is a repeat offender at 0.3, while “Chopped Junior” on Food Network ticked up from 0.2 to 0.3.

Leading the 0.2’s was “Til Death Do Us Part” on Investigation Discovery, having slipped from the 0.3 of its premiere. “Chopped” stayed at 0.2, as did “Sweet Home Sextuplets” on TLC. On HGTV, “House Hunters International” continued treading water at 0.2, but the flagship series sank week-to-week from 0.3 to 0.2. “Ink Master” on Paramount and “Diabolical” on Investigation Discovery floundered similarly, moving from 0.3 to 0.2, while “Tales” on BET made it on to the bottom of the chart despite clinging to a 0.2.
