    So much for this game breaking records…

    ABC Family holiday specials doing better than CW original programming.

  • Dillan

    Another great Monday for MTV!

  • Matt

    i love catfish!

  • Jenny

    @Rob

    Isn’t that usually the case? Poor CW

  • Max

    Is CATFISH something MTV would renew?

  • Dillan

    @Max:

    With these ratings, yes. It’s surprisingly, MTV’s highest rated TV show right now (beating Jersey Shore and Teen Mom 2). Teen Mom 2 is also rating very well, staying steady this season.

  • Twist Of Fate

    SpongeBob continues to impress me.

  • Chris

    Ouch. Hoarders’ new episode didn’t even make the top 100?? Same for Intervention.

    I can’t believe Cake Boss still does that well.

  • Meanie

    Catfish is a great show I was happy when MTV picked this up but just when I was proud of MTV they decide since Jersey Shore is over what they due Washington Heights to take its place.

    I know VH1 is waiting for LHHATL to return cause those ratings had VH1 always in the top spot.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Surprised it didn’t break records, but 5.5 is still impressive

  • Joseph

    Not surprised that ESPN’s “NFL Monday Night Football” dominated the night among both cable and broadcast shows.

    This may have been the best matchup ESPN has ever had for a Monday night game.

    Had the game not become one-sided, the game might have drawn 15-16 million viewers on average.

  • DenverDean

    CSI & CSI:NY combined for a 0.8 OPPOSITE EACH OTHER at 11 PM.

  • silvit

    @Chris

    Both of them are in the list at 9 and 10. Just use the “find on page” feature and write AEN and you will easily find them. :-)

  • LT

    Why are you guys surprised? Lol I don’t get it. Everyone knows a blowout game will reduce ratings. Let’s say the game came down to the wire, it would have added another 3 or 4 million viewers. People shouldv’e known when my Pats are on, more than likely they will dominate their opponent. Pats will probably dominate the 49ers too next week. Sorry that my team is not mediocre like the Cowboys so all their games come down to the last minute.

  • Chris

    Thanks, silvit. I was on my phone and got a bit panicky.

  • Jon

    Raw is really taking a massive hit since going to 3 hours.

  • Curtis

    Not that surprised by the lower-than-expected football numbers, not just because it was a blowout, but also because the teams playing (even with good records) are not exactly the NFL’s biggest draw. Last week, we had two tradition-laden teams that have huge fanbases and always draw big ratings (even if they’re records aren’t great). As great as the Patriots have been over the years (and I’m a huge fan), they still can’t match some of those NFC East powers in terms of ratings.

  • Hillbilly

    Chelsea Lately must be falling off the map. She hasn’t made the list in forever. I guess her new studio ain’t helping.

  • Nikki

    VH1 needs to get rid of BBWLA cause the show is the same old thing! they meet up the argue go home and do the same thing the next day.MTV never did this good on Mondays.him i see a renewal for Catfish!

  • CenterGravity

    How long will American Chopper stay cancelled?
