“WWE Smackdown” maintained its place at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings for the second week in a row.

The USA broadcast scored a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, the same as what it had scored last week. OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” followed behind and ticked up a tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 this time around. MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” landed in the top 5 of the night with a 0.5 and 818,000 viewers, even with its season premiere last week.

On Bravo, “Below Deck Mediterranean” was steady with another 0.5, while the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” similarly maintained its previous 0.4. TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” stayed consistent as well, and maintained its season-long 0.4 streak yet again.

Outside of the top 25, TV Land’s “Younger” held steady with another 0.2.
