The Tuesday cable ratings once again proved adequate stomping grounds for “WWE Smackdown.”

The USA Wrestling series scored a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, remaining dead even with its previous performance. This was more than enough to keep it ahead of fellow USA series “Chrisley Knows Best,” which climbed all the way to second place despite slipping a bit from 0.5 to 0.4. OWN and “The Haves and the Have Nots” came in to round out the top 3, picking up a 0.4, as well. This was an improvement of one-tenth of a point from its rating last week.

Lurking just below the chart’s upper tier was “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on VH1 with a 0.4, keeping consistent with its previous score. This kept it ahead of USA’s “Animal Kingdom,” which stood atop a spat of recurring 0.3’s, including those from TLC’s “Outdaughtered,” TBS’ “The Detour,” and HGTV’s “Good Bones.” On Food Network, “Chopped Junior” rose from 0.2 to 0.3, while its flagship series continued to languish at 0.2. Additionally, “Deadliest Catch” was toppled from 0.4 to 0.3.

“House Hunters International” remained at 0.2 on HGTV, even as “Sweet Home Sextuplets” of TLC lost traction at 0.3 and landed at 0.2. Other repeat performers at 0.2 included Discovery’s “Guardians of the Glade,” A&E’s “The First 48,” OWN’s “Ambitions,” USA’s “Radkes,” and Paramount’s “Ink Master.” At the very bottom of the chart, “Dance Moms” brought Lifetime its sole top 25 entry, barely clinging to the edge with its consecutive 0.2.
