The Discovery Channel’s special Shark Week-themed broadcasts rose to the top of the cable ratings yet again this week.

“The Laws of Jaws,” “Air Jaws: The Hunted,” and “Guy Fieri’s Feeding Frenzy” led the Tuesday ratings last night with back-to-back-to-back 0.8s in adults 18-49. USA’s weekly “WWE Smackdown” followed closely behind with a 0.8 as well, up one-tenth from its previous 0.7. The series premiere of “Miz & Mrs.” rounded out the top 5 of the night with a solid 0.8 and 1.47 million viewers, also on USA.

TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” held steady with another 0.4, while Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean” rose one-tenth to a 0.6. MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” maintained its previous 0.5. Outside of the top 25, TV Land’s “Younger” (0.2) was even, and up in total viewers from 568,000 to 639,000.
