It was, as usual, “WWE Smackdown” throned at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.
The USA wrestling series raked in a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, ensuring that it remained ahead of its competition but failing to match the 0.7 it rose to last week. The second slot of the chart was occupied by a “30 for 30” documentary about Dennis Rodman on ESPN, which scored a 0.5. MTV’s “Teen Mom” rounded out the top 3 in the meantime by rising from 0.3 to 0.5.
Elsewhere, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” found itself stalled at fourth place when it failed to maintain last week’s 0.5 and sank to 0.4. “Mayans M.C.” on FX suffered similarly; after premiering in the third slot with a 0.5, this week it found itself relegated to fifth place with a 0.4. Beneath them, the foremost recurring 0.3 came from “Growing Up Chrisley” on USA, where it was joined by both “Deadliest Catch” and “Undercover Billionaire” on Discovery Channel.
Further along, “Valley of the Damned” brought Investigation Discovery a consecutive 0.2, keeping just ahead of OWN’s “Greenleaf” as it slipped from 0.3 to 0.2. Food Network’s “Chopped” also remained at 0.2, the same score “Ghosted: Love Gone Missing” premiered at on MTV. HGTV was able to snag another pair of 0.2’s from “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International,” keeping pace with repeat performances from “Web of Lies” on Investigation Discovery, “Intervention: The Heroin Hub” on A&E, and “The Little Couple” on TLC.
