ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Playoff game between Minnesota and the NY Yankees led the Tuesday cable ratings this week with a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49. Predictably, FX’s “American Horror Story: Cult” followed closely behind, though, and managed to maintain its previous 1.1 for the second week in a row. On USA, “WWE Smackdown” took a minor hit and fell one-tenth from a 0.8 to a 0.7 this time around. “Chrisley Knows Best” experienced a similar drop, falling from a 0.6 to a 0.5, also on USA.

Meanwhile, MTV’s “The Challenge: Dirty 30” rose from a 0.5 to a 0.6 and Bravo’s “Below Deck” held steady with a 0.5 once again this week. In addition, OWN’s “If Loving You is Wrong” ticked up from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5, while “Queen Sugar” returned with a 0.5.
