“WWE Smackdown” reclaimed the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings this week. The USA live broadcast scored a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.77 million viewers, one-tenth higher than the 0.8 that “Smackdown” had scored the week before. Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” managed to climb into the top 3 of the night as well, by similarly ticking up one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.6.

Following its series premiere last week, the History Channel’s “The Curse of Civil War Gold” experienced a predictable drop with its second episode, which was down one-tenth to a 0.4. Meanwhile, “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.” held steady with a 0.4 for the second week in a row.

Both MTV’s “The Challenge: Vendettas” and OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” were able to maintain their respective 0.5s yet again.
