FX’s “Mayans M.C.” maintained its place as the no. 1 show in the Tuesday cable ratings for the third week in a row, and was even with the same 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 it had scored a week ago. The “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off also experienced a minor uptick in viewers, from 2.01 million last week to 2.10 million this time around.

“WWE Smackdown” followed closely behind with a 0.8 of its own, while MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” rounded out the top 3 of the night with yet another 0.5. USA’s “The Purge,” however, experienced another small ratings hit this week – falling one-tenth from its previous 0.6 to a 0.5.

Elsewhere, TBS’ “Wrecked” (0.3) was even with its previous episode, and Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” led cable news for the night with a 0.3 and 3.07 million viewers.
