This week, “The Curse of Oak Island” on History Channel was narrowly toppled from the highest point of the Tuesday cable ratings.
Instead, the top slot was reclaimed by “WWE Smackdown” on USA, which brought in a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. That was the same score it received last week, but “Oak Island” stumbled from 0.8 to 0.7 and allowed “Smackdown” to close the distance, edging it out. Slightly less competitive in the third slot was TRUTV’s broadcast of the Temple Owls vs. Belmont Bruins as part of the 2019 NCAA Basketball Tournament. The game received a 0.6.
Elsewhere on the chart, Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was pushed down to fourth place when it dropped from a 0.6 to a 0.5. This was the same score “Temptation Island” on USA remained at, while “The Haves and the Have Nots” on OWN also kept to a 0.4.
MTV’s “Siesta Key” managed to crawl out of its 0.3 slump to achieve a 0.4, even as TBS’s “Miracle Workers” continued at 0.3. “Chopped” on Food Network recovered to 0.3, which was also the domain of TLC’s “I Am Jazz” for yet another week. Additionally, a new season of “Tosh.0” premiered at 0.3.
