ESPN’s broadcast of the Colorado vs. Chicago MLB wild card game easily took the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings this week with a 2.1 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 6.33 million viewers. USA’s “WWE Smackdown” came second with a 0.7, even with what it had scored last Tuesday. After taking a hit last week as well, FX’s “Mayans M.C.” maintained a 0.6 for the second week in a row.

Elsewhere, MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” was down a tenth week-to-week from its previous 0.5 to a 0.4 this time around. USA’s “The Purge” held steady with a 0.4, while the season 3 finale of TBS’ “Wrecked” stayed even with another 0.3.

FX’s “Mr. Inbetween” remained outside of the top 25 again, and scored the same 0.2 as its premiere did a week ago.
