All three hours of the weekly USA broadcast scored 0.8 ratings in the adults 18-49 demo, tying with VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” for the week’s no. 1 show in the demo. A&E’s Friday night edition of “Live PD” and TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” followed closely behind with matching 0.7s.

Meanwhile, Fox News resumed its usual dominance in the total viewers measure, generating 18 of the week’s 25 most-watched broadcasts. The Wednesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” broadcasts led the week with 3.35 million viewers.
