USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Smackdown” led the Tuesday cable ratings this week, maintaining a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. After taking a minor hit last week as well, The Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” followed closely behind with a 0.6, one-tenth higher than its previous 0.5. On Bravo, “Below Deck Mediterranean” rose a noticeable two-tenths from a 0.3 to a 0.5.

With its season 2 premiere, TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” landed near the top of the night, raking in a 0.4 with 1.19 million viewers. This was even with its series premiere last year, though with slightly fewer viewers this time around. “Pretty Little Liars” held steady with a 0.4 once again on Freeform, while OWN’s “If Loving You is Wrong” maintained a 0.5.
