Once again, it was “WWE RAW” at the top of the Monday cable ratings.
The USA wrestling series continued its chokehold on the top slot by scoring a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 at 9 p.m. This was an increase of 0.2 from its top score of last week, and the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. hours of its broadcast further bolstered its strength with a pair of 0.9’s. This meant that “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” on VH1 was boxed out of the top 3 entirely, especially as it slipped from 0.8 to 0.7. “90 Day Fiancé,” on the other hand, ticked up from 0.5 to 0.6 to grab the fifth slot for TLC.
Elsewhere, “Below Deck Mediterranean” failed to maintain its spot in the top 5 despite remaining at its consistent 0.6. “Straight Up Steve Austin” grabbed the sole 0.5 for the night on USA, while “The Family Chantel” on TLC led a diverse pack of recurring 0.4’s. Among their number was “Teen Mom” on MTV, “Girls’ Cruise” on VH1, and “American Dad” on TBS.
A bit lower, “Final Space” continued at the 0.3 it fell to last week, keeping just ahead of the similarly consistent “Fast N’ Loud” on Discovery Channel. “The Hills: New Beginnings” on MTV made a return to the top 25 by upgrading from a 0.2 to a 0.3, while “Twisted Sisters” returned to Investigation Discovery for a 0.3. To finish out the night for VH1, “Love & Listings” captured yet another consecutive 0.3.
