This week, ESPN was toppled from its trifecta at the top of Tuesday’s cable ratings.
Instead, it was “The Curse of Oak Island” on History Channel in the night’s foremost slot, with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. This was up one-tenth of a point from its season seven premiere last week, and more than enough for it to comfortably surpass all of its competition for the night. In second place, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” rose from 0.4 to 0.5 on Bravo, while in third place, ESPN’s “CFP Rankings Show” scored a 0.4.
Further down, “Teen Mom” on MTV provided a consistent 0.4, a score it shared only with “SportsCenter Late” and the Memphis Tigers vs. Oregon Ducks game on ESPN. History debuted a new series, “Kings of Pain,” at 0.3, where it landed just ahead of TBS’ “Misery Index” as the latter series climbed from 0.2 to 0.3.
On Comedy Central, “Tosh.O” was the night’s uppermost 0.2, narrowly defeating Food Network’s “Chopped” for the position. TLC’s “Counting On” tumbled from 0.3 to 0.2, but “The Purge” on USA and “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central each provided continuous 0.2’s. Finally, on the very last rung of the chart, Investigation Discovery’s “Relatively Evil” ascended from 0.1 to 0.2.
