Unlike the past several days and weeks, there were no major sports broadcasts on to dominate the Tuesday cable ratings this week. This allowed FX’s “American Horror Story: Cult” to return to the top with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, the same as what the anthology series had scored last week. Meanwhile, USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Smackdown” followed closely behind with a 0.8, one-tenth higher than its previous 0.7.

MTV’s “The Challenge: Dirty 30” took a minor hit, though, falling one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4 this time around, while OWN’s “If Loving You is Wrong” maintained a 0.4 for the second week in a row. On The History Channel, the penultimate episode of “Forged in Fire’s” fourth season landed in the Top 3 of the night as well with a 0.6.
