Without the WWE, it was the MLB perched atop the Tuesday cable ratings.

TBS got an easy win for the night with its broadcast of the MLB game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Washington Nationals, scoring a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49. This easily outpaced the 0.7 of last week’s top broadcast, “WWE Smackdown,” let alone the 0.5 of this week’s second place contender, “Teen Mom” on MTV. Despite that, however, “Teen Mom” did improve its week-to-week performance by one-tenth of a point. The final top 3 entry went to “The Real Housewives of Orange County” as it dropped from 0.5 to 0.4 on Bravo.

Elsewhere, “Mayans M.C.” on FX continued with its seemingly perpetual 0.4, providing the final score of that number for the night. On TLC, “Outdaughtered” grabbed a 0.3, as did a host of political and sports analysis shows. Nothing else on the chart managed to break beyond 0.2, where “Greenleaf” on OWN held out despite not managing to make the chart at all last week.

Meanwhile, “Chopped” on Food Network collapsed from 0.3 to 0.2, coming out just ahead of the consistent 0.2 of “Bering Sea Gold” on Discovery. “Valley of the Damned” on Investigation Discovery also held at 0.2, finding itself in the domain of “The First 48” on A&E, “Fixer Upper” on HGTV, and “Kate Plus 8” on TLC. At the very bottom of the chart, “House Hunters” remained at 0.2 but moved from forty-fifth place to twenty-fifth.
