The lack of any major sporting events meant there was something of a vacuum at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.
The top performance of the night came from “The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo, which posted its second consecutive 0.5. In moving from fourth to first place, it breezed past FX’s “Mayans M.C.,” which, despite remaining at its own 0.4, managed to rise to the second slot. To round out the top 3, “Teen Mom” on MTV sank from 0.4 to 0.3.
On NBA-TV, the Memphis Grizzlies played the Los Angeles Lakers for a 0.3, landing in the same lane as the consistent score from “Counting On” on TLC. Below them, “Chopped” of Food Network ticked up from 0.2 to 0.3. The foremost 0.2 of the night came from USA’s “The Purge,” which rose from twenty-fourth place to eighth.
Other repeat 0.2’s came from “Bering Sea Gold” on Discovery Channel, “Greenleaf” on OWN, and “Tosh.O” on Comedy Central. TLC’s “Outdaughtered” joined them there after dropping from 0.3 to 0.2, while “House Hunters International” continued at 0.2 but rose from thirty-fifth to twenty-fourth place.
