I thought it was part of the pre-game show when the lights went out at Candlestick last night, but Monday Night Football was just getting warmed up, and even with the power outages it was up sharply from last week's 3.7 to a 6.4  adults 18-49 rating vs. last week's lousy matchup. Its 16.7 million viewers were up almost 7 million from last week.

Pawn Stars two episodes drew a 1.9 and 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 2.0 & 2.1.

WWE Raw's regular two episodes averaged  1.6 and 1.6 adults 18-49 ratings respectively, vs. last week's 1.8 and 1.6.

TNT's The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles each scored a 1.0  adults 18-49 rating identical to last week's ratings for both.

The season finale of MTV's Ridiculousness at 10p had a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

The season finale of Bravo's Watch What Happens: Live at 11pm had a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Updates via @TVBill: here when I see them.
