A post-Royal Rumble edition of “Monday Night Raw” was the No. 1 show among adults 18-49 on cable last week. All three hours posted a 1.4 in the demographic, good enough to lead the week in between ESPN’s last NFL telecast of the season and the return of “The Walking Dead” to AMC.

Fox News occupied all but a handful of spots in the viewer Top 25. “The O’Reilly Factor” had an above-average week with four of the five most-watched cable telecasts. Tuesday’s edition led the way with 6.75 million viewers.
