NETWORK UPDATE:  THE VOICE gained 0.2 in final network numbers, and there were 0.1 increases for FRESH OFF THE BOAT, AGENTS OF SHIELD, NCIS, and PERSON OF INTEREST.  The only 0.1 decline was for the FOREVER rerun.

Ratings in key demos for the Top 25 original cable telecasts (plus a few other lower-rated but noteworthy programs):

OWN’s THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS was at the top of Tuesday cable, despite easing off by 0.01 to 0.92.  REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS (Bravo) almost matched it with a 0.11 increase to 0.91, although NEWLYWEDS: THE FIRST YEAR fell 0.04 to 0.27 in its second airing.  On ABCFamily, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS jumped by 0.19 to 0.86, and SWITCHED AT BIRTH rose by 0.07 to 0.41 (in the target F12-34 demo, they were at 2.04/0.95, up 0.33/0.07 from last week).  On BET, BEING MARY JANE took a 0.15 fall to 0.81, and KEYSHIA COLE was down 0.04 to 0.38.  (It’s worth noting that while HAVES AND HAVE NOTS and BEING MARY JANE are just 0.11 apart in the 18-49 demo, MARY JANE does considerably better with the F12-34 demo, 0.93 vs 0.69, while HAVES is stronger with the older F25-54 demo [not on the chart], 1.66 vs. 1.38.)  TLC’s 19 KIDS AND COUNTING was at 0.78/0.75, up a few hundredths from last week, with the 19 KIDS lead-in down 0.06 to 0.25 and lead-out OUR LITTLE FAMILY up 0.08 to 0.46.  COUNTING CARS (History) gained a bit to 0.65/0.60, although last week it was listed as 1-hour at 0.57 instead of 2 half-hours, and GANGLAND CONFIDENTIAL increased 0.03 to 0.43.  MTV’s THE CHALLENGE rose 0.12 to 0.62, while REAL WORLD lost 0.03 to 0.58.  COUGAR TOWN (TBS) gained 0.16 to 0.58.  On Comedy Central, TOSH.0 fell 0.09 to 0.57, and KROLL SHOW dropped 0.05 to 0.25.  TNT’s RIZZOLI & ISLES was down 0.09 to 0.56, and PERCEPTION gained a tick to 0.32.  JUSTIFIED (FX) rose 0.08 to 0.56.  DANCE MOMS (Lifetime) rose 0.05 to 0.53, and BORN IN THE WILD stayed at 0.13.  Discovery’s AMISH MAFIA lost 0.06 to 0.42.  SIRENS (USA) dropped 0.08 to 0.30.
