This week, the first part of the second round of the Democratic Debates unseated “WWE Smackdown” from the top slot.

CNN’s coverage of the debate rose all the way to a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49, with the opening proceedings scoring a 1.6 and the closing scoring a 1.1. All of this was stronger than MSNBC’s coverage of round one of the first debate, which, without its combination with NBC, came in at a 0.9 rating. Additionally, further post-debate analysis on CNN racked up an additional 1.1 to consume the fourth slot. All of this was enough to push the ordinary champion, “WWE Smackdown,” back to fifth place as it fell from 0.7 to 0.6.

Just below the top five was “Air Jaws Strikes Back,” a part of Discovery’s Shark Week, at 0.5. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” tumbled from 0.6 to 0.5 on Bravo, while “Black Ink Crew Chicago” ascended from 0.3 to 0.4 on VH1. On TNT, “Animal Kingdom” maintained its constant 0.3, as did “Miz & Mrs.” on USA, but “The Detour” managed to claw its way back from 0.2 to reach 0.3.

Many other 0.3’s were consistent, as well, including  “Good Bones” on HGTV, “Outdaughtered” on TLC, “Ex on the Beach” on MTV, and “Til Death Do Us Part” on Investigation Discovery. “Chrisley Knows Best” on USA suffered a small blow from 0.4 to 0.3, but “Ink Master” allowed Paramount to capture the final slot of the chart by clutching to its 0.2 yet again.
