Of course the Monday Night Football doubleheader crushed everything on cable and broadcast in the ratings on Monday night, just as it will for the rest of the football season. MNF took its toll across the cable landscape on Monday night. The ESPN2 line item is for the first few minutes of the late game which got pushed over to that network.

Pawn Stars was the best of the non-pigskin cable competition (w/ one WWE Raw) with 1.5 adults 18-49 ratings in its two airings, down sharply (0.8 points) vs. last week. Were they repeats or just stomped by football?

WWE Raw's two episodes slipped 0.1 and 0.2 points vs. last Monday, scoring 1.5 and 1.4 adults 18-49 rating in their respective airings.

MTV's Ridiculousness stabilized at a 0.9 rating.

The series finale of Kate Plus 8 drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Was it a season high?

The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills second episode fell 0.4 points to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Basketball Wives LA was fell 0.3 points to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating for VH1.

Discovery's American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior tumbled 0.6 points to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

Rizzoli & Isles was down two tenths to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and The Closer was down three tenths to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

Returning after a week off, Eureka had a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, Warehouse 13 drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating , and Alphas scored a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

T.O. Show was down three tenths of point vs. last week to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.
