“Love and Hip Hop” finished fourth among adults 18-49 in the live + same-day weekly ratings for Jan. 30-Feb. 5. With three days of delayed viewing, it moves up to the top spot.

The VH1 show added half a point to its initial tally, rising to a 1.7 in the 18-49 demographic in the Live +3 ratings. That was good enough to move it ahead of “WWE Monday Night Raw,” which led the initial ratings. “Gold Rush” and “Teen Mom II” (the biggest gainer with a 0.8 improvement) also moved ahead of “Raw.”

The Tuesday “O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News remained No. 1 in viewers with 6.82 million despite minimal gains.
