Monday Night Football returns next week and will dominate cable Mondays for the next 17 weeks or so.  But on Labor Day Monday night, it was college football that dominated.  The game between Boise St. and Virginia Tech was far out in front over everything on cable and broadcast too with a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating and nearly 9.9 million viewers.

When it comes to total viewers,  TNT's The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles were rolling in them on Monday night, too.  The 18-49 numbers the advertisers covet were also very good too for scripted cable shows (though definitely not a case where  "NBC would kill to have those numbers!").

The Closer was only up a little bit vs. last week but Rizzoli & Isles rose two tenth with adults 18-49 to a 1.5 rating and over 800,000 viewers to 7.24 million viewers.  The Closer had more viewers with 7.92 million, but the same 1.5 rating with adults 18-49.
