Monday Cable Ratings: BCS Championship Down, But On Top + ‘Pawn Stars,’ ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ ‘T.I. and Tiny,’ ‘WWE RAW’ & Much More

While perhaps in the minority, I enjoyed the first go round of Alabama-LSU. But last night’s BCS Championship rematch was a yawner and unsurprisingly was down from last year’s 27.3 million viewer average and 10.1 adults 18-49 rating. Somewhat surprisingly to me, it wasn’t down that much —  to 24.1 million viewers and an 8.7 adults 18-49 rating and stands as cable’s second most-watched telecast ever (last year’s BCS Championship was number one).

Pawn Stars two episodes may not have topped the ratings, but they were strong drawing 2.3 and 2.4  adults 18-49 ratings in its two half hours, even with last week.

WWE RAW’s regular two episodes averaged  a1.6 adults 18-49 rating down vs a 1.8 and 1.7 last week.

Pretty Little Liars drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week. Updates via @TVBill; The Lying Game drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating (even w/last week) and 1.5 million viewers.  MTV’s Caged premiered to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating and 619,000 viewers

Love and Hip Hop 2 and T.I. and Tiny were strong for VH1 nabbing 1.9 and 1.8 adults 18-49 ratings respectively.

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.
