For the first time since it premiered, FX’s “Mayans M.C.” lost the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings this week.

The “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off hit a new low last night, falling two-tenths from its previous 0.8 to a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 with 1.53 million viewers. It came second in the night, landing behind USA’s weekly “WWE Smackdown,” which fell one-tenth week-to-week from a 0.8 to a 0.7 this time around.

MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” rounded out the top 3 of the night, steady with another 0.5. USA’s “The Purge” fell another tenth, down from a 0.5 to a 0.4 with 1.13 million viewers. On TBS, “Wrecked” managed to maintain a 0.3 yet again, heading into its season finale next week.

Outside of the top 25, the series premiere of “Mr. Inbetween” posted a 0.2 with 645,000 viewers on FX, four-tenths lower than its “Mayans” lead-in.
