A small uptick put “WWE Smackdown” back at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings this week.

The weekly USA broadcast led the night with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, up one-tenth from the 0.6 it scored last Tuesday. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” came second, and similarly managed to tick up from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6, while the 2-part season premiere of “Chrisley Knows Best” followed closely behind with 0.5 and 0.4 ratings, respectively.

Elsewhere, TBS’ “The Last O.G.” held steady with its second straight 0.4, and the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” rose from a 0.3 to a 0.4. The same could not be said for OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots,” which stayed even with another 0.3. On the History Channel, “The Curse of Civil War Gold” also held onto its previous 0.2.
