Like “Raw” the Monday night before it, USA’s “WWE Smackdown” won the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings this week with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. This was the same as what it had scored last week. Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean” followed closely behind it with a 0.6, also even with its previous episode.

Following its series premiere last week as well, USA’s “Miz & Mrs.” was down from a 0.8 to a 0.5. On TNT, “Animal Kingdom” continued its season-long 0.4 streak yet again, while MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” took a hit this week, falling one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4.

For the first time in several weeks too, TV Land’s “Younger” climbed back into the top 25 of the night, even with another 0.2 and up slightly in total viewers with 646,000.
