Last night's Giants-Saints Monday Night Football averaged a 5.6 rating with adults 18-49 rating and 14.4 million viewers and easily dominated both the cable and broadcast network landscapes for the night.

Pawn Stars returned with two new episodes that each drew a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating and topped cable other than the football game.

WWE Raw's two episodes averaged 1.8 and 1.7 adults 18-49 ratings respectively.

VH1's Love & Hip Hop was up a tenth to a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating and a 4 minute 'T.I. & Tiny' trailer that preceded it also scored a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Basketball Wives LA was even with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

TNT's The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles both returned down with 0.9 and 0.8 adults 18-49 ratings in their respective airings vs. a 1.1 and 1.0 respectively for their September 12 episodes. Both were down in total viewers as well which will likely amp up the "cable shows, stick to summer" chatter in the comments.

Update via @TVBill: Bored to Death averaged 232,000 viewers and a 0.1 adults 18-49 rating and Enlightened averaged 151,000 and a 0.1 with adults 18-49.

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 (including HBO's shows) I will update the text.
