Stronger lead-in support from WWE SmackDown! did not prevent USA Network’s “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious BIG” from enduring ratings declines this week.

According to live+same-day data, the third episode of “Unsolved” drew a 0.40 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 1.01 million overall viewers.

Last week’s episode drew a 0.41 in the demo and 1.13 million in viewers.

This week’s broadcast, as noted, benefited from stronger lead-in support. This Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown! Live drew a 0.91 rating and 2.77 million viewers in the 8-10PM timeslot. Last week’s broadcast posted a 0.75 rating in the demo and 2.59 million in viewership.

While a 0.40 rating is decent for a cable drama in 2018 (and bests recent numbers for FX’s true crime docudrama “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace”), it does not convey “hit” status.
