It was a fairly even night in the Tuesday cable ratings this week.

Once again, USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Smackdown” led the night and managed to maintain a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.55 million total viewers. This was slightly higher than last week’s 2.465 million. Meanwhile, after taking a hit in the week before, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” held steady with a 0.6 for the second week in a row. The History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” also managed to land in the Top 5 of the night with a 0.5.

With its season 2 premiere, USA’s “Shooter” raked in a 0.4 with 1.51 million total viewers. This was down slightly from the show’s season one finale back in January, which had scored a 0.5 with 1.45 million viewers. In addition, both The Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” and TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” managed to maintain their previous 0.4s.
