This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


Last night’s Rams/Seahwaks Monday Night Football was unsurprisingly not one of the higher-rated MNF games, and it was down a tenth with adults 18-49 from last week’s also-lousy matchup (Chargers/Jaguars) to a 3.7 rating with adults 18-49 rating, though its 9.9 million viewers were nearly half a million greater than last week.

Pawn Stars two episodes drew a 2.0 and 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, up from last week’s 1.6 & 1.8.

WWE RAW’s regular two episodes averaged  1.8 and 1.6 adults 18-49 ratings respectively, and the WWE special at 8pm averaged a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

TNT’s The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles each scored a 1.0  adults 18-49 rating and were each up two tenths from last week.

The last part of Bag of Bones on A&E scored a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 2.99 million viewers, down from part one’s 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and  and 3.37 million viewers.

Update via @TVBill: HBO’s Enlightened averaged a 0.1 adults 18-49 rating and 263,000 viewers.
