“WWE Smackdown” held onto the top spot of the night in the Tuesday cable ratings this week, and scored the same 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 that it had the week before. MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” followed behind it with a 0.5, similarly even with its last episode. FX’s “Mayans M.C.,” which rounded out the top 3 of the night, was also steady with another 0.5, as was Bravo’s “Below Deck” (0.5).

After taking a small hit last week, USA’s “The Purge” managed to tick back up one-tenth to a 0.5, while OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” maintained its previous 0.3.

On TBS, “The Guest Book” posted a 0.3, matching its season premiere from a week ago.
