This week, “WWE Smackdown” continued its reign at the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.

The USA wrestling series left the night with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, finding itself dead even with the score it slumped to last week. In spite of that, it still managed to keep out in front of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo, which returned from 0.4 back to 0.5. “Mayans M.C.” on FX rounded out the top 3 by holding onto the 0.4 it previously slipped to.

Beyond the upper tier of the chart, “Teen Mom” brought MTV a 0.4 instead of its most recent 0.5. “Bering Sea Gold” returned to Discovery with a 0.3, up from the 0.2 it last received in 2018, and “Undercover Billionaire” held at 0.3 on the same network. On Food Network, “Chopped” recovered from a few weeks of straight 0.2’s and returned to the realm of 0.3’s.

Investigation Discovery’s “Web of Lies” was foremost among 0.2’s, keeping at its usual pace. Other repeat 0.2’s also came from “Valley of the Damned” on the same network, “Greenleaf” on OWN, and “Supermarket Stakeout” on Food Network. A “Bering Sea Gold” special brought Discovery another 0.2, and, at the very bottom of the chart, “Tosh.0” scored a typical 0.2 on Comedy Central.
