USA maintained its spot atop the Monday cable ratings once again this week, with “WWE Monday Night Raw” scoring a 1.2 peak rating in adults 18-49, spread out across a three-hour-long broadcast. This was the same peak rating as what “Raw” had scored the week before. ESPN’s coverage of the NFL preseason game between the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants followed closely behind with a 1.2 as well.

On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from its previous 1.2 to a 1.1 this time around. Meanwhile, TBS’ “People of Earth” fell out of the Top 25, despite maintaining a 0.3 on the network. AMC’s “Preacher” similarly just missed out on the Top 25, but did drop from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3. Fox News’ coverage of last night’s Presidential Address landed higher than any of its competitors, scoring two back-to-back 0.6s.
