PRETTY LITTLE LIARS (ABCF) topped Tuesday cable, although it was off 0.02 from last week at 0.93.  Lead-out SWITCHED AT BIRTH lost 0.09 to 0.48.  Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS gained a tenth to 0.87, but lead-out GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO DIVORCE fell 0.03 to 0.35–not a great sign.  On TBS, GROUND FLOOR was up 0.05 to 0.59, but COUGAR TOWN dropped 0.09 to 0.38 (the latter is in its final season anyway, so it doesn’t matter much).  History’s CURSE OF OAK ISLAND was steady at 0.86.  THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS (OWN) was down a big 0.24 from last week to 0.81, and Discovery’s MOONSHINERS lost a similar 0.22 to 0.60.  TLC’s KATE PLUS 8 arrived at 0.67.  On MTV, THE CHALLENGE was up 0.05 to 0.55, but REAL WORLD SKELETONS dropped 0.14 to 0.34.  REAL HUSBANDS (BET) climbed 0.08 to 0.50.  DANCE MOMS (Lifetime) fell 0.08 to 0.51, and lead-out CHILD GENIUS was down 0.15 to 0.26.  SUAVE SAYS (VH1) was up 0.02 to 0.08.  The final season of THE KROLL SHOW (Comedy) returned at 0.25.
