The top of Saturday’s cable chart offers a pretty eclectic mix of programming: A college football game on ESPN (Alabama-Mississippi State) led the day in adults 18-49 with a 1.1 rating, followed by FS1’s telecast of preliminary bouts for UFC 205 at 0.9.

Reruns of “Family Guy,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “American Dad” are also near the top, as is Hallmark’s original movie “Every Christmas Has a Story” (0.6). The movie was Saturday’s top cable program in viewers with just over 4 million.
