Monday cable ratings: ‘Monday Night Football’ and ‘WWE Raw’ tick up

“Monday Night Football” maintained the top spot in the cable ratings once again this week. Following it hitting a series low last week, however, ESPN’s broadcast of the Steelers vs Bengals game managed to rake in a 3.5 rating in adults 18-49 with 10.84 million viewers, significantly higher than last week’s 2.7. A late-night edition of “SportsCenter” predictably followed behind the game with a 1.5, also on ESPN.

Meanwhile, USA’s weekly edition of “WWE Monday Night Raw” rounded out the Top 3 of the night and scored a peak 1.0 rating throughout its three-hour broadcast, one-tenth higher than last week’s 0.9. On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop” took a minor hit, falling from its previous 1.0 down to a 0.9, while The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” also fell down from a 0.7 to a 0.8 this time around.
