Monday Night Football topped the cable landscape with a 4.8 adults 18-49 rating and 11.9 million viewers. I posted about the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen already, but it towered above everything but the NFL game and set records for Comedy Central. As you can see below, even its encore performed as well as the best non-NFL competition.  WWE Raw's two episodes were up slightly versus last week with each of the hours scoring a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. MTV's Ridiculousness dropped 33% to  a 0.6 rating. The season finale of  Eureka was steady with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, Warehouse 13 was also steady with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating , and Alphas too was steady with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

T.O. Show was down another tenth of point vs. last week to a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Update: Not in the table below, but Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness averaged 2.7 million viewers and a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49. ABC Family's The Lying Game averaged 1.193 million viewers and a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating, which was steady vs. last week.. MTV's Rob Dyrdek Fantasy Factory averaged 998,000 viewers and a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating at 9:30p and Death Valley averaged 811,000 viewers and a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating. (via @TVBill)

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source. If I see additional information elsewhere I will update the text.
