“WWE Smackdown” kept a fairly easy hold on the top spot in the Tuesday cable ratings.
The weekly USA broadcast led the night with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, back up one-tenth from the 0.6 it scored a week ago. Meanwhile, ESPN’s coverage of the Men and Women’s Quarter Finals in this year’s U.S. Open came second in the night with a 0.5 and 2.24 million viewers.
The season 2 premiere of FX’s “Mayans M.C.” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.5 and 1.39 million viewers, steady with its first season finale, but down a bit from its freshman season’s 0.6 and 1.60 million viewer averages. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” followed closely behind with another 0.5.
Additionally, the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” grabbed a 0.3, back down a tenth from its previous 0.4. USA’s “Growing Up Chrisley” went the other way, ticking up from a 0.2 to a 0.3, while HBO’s “Hard Knocks” (0.3) stayed even. Elsewhere, OWN’s “Greenleaf” kicked off its fourth season with the same 0.3 that its third season averaged last year.
