Following a night dominated by election coverage last week, ESPN won the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings with their coverage of the College Football Playoff rankings, which scored a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. It was the only program of the night to reach the 1.0 barrier. The network’s broadcasts of the college basketball games between Duke and Kansas and Kentucky and Michigan State performed well also, scoring a 0.9 and 0.7 throughout the night, respectively.

The series premiere of “Shooter” raked in a 0.5 on USA, on par with a number of other USA premieres this season, and with that of “Atlanta” on FX in September. It did, however, score higher in viewers than the critically-acclaimed freshman comedy. TNT’s “Good Behavior” didn’t fare quite as well, premiering to a 0.3 and 813,000 viewers. A second episode was outside the Top 100 at 0.2 and 746,000 viewers.

Meanwhile, “WWE Smackdown” experienced a minor increase on USA, ticking up three tenths from its previous 0.6 to a 0.9. On VH1, “If Loving You is Wrong” returned from its week-long hiatus with a 0.6, one tenth higher than the 0.5 it scored two weeks ago.
