This week, the NFL preseason was able to secure the top slot of the Monday cable ratings.

ESPN’s broadcast of the San Francisco 49ers facing off against the Denver Broncos brought in the biggest numbers of the night, scoring a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was just enough for it to elbow its way past the ordinary champion “Monday Night RAW” on USA, which peaked with a 0.9 rating at 9 p.m. The wrestling series also scored a pair of 0.8’s during its 10 p.m. and 8 p.m. hours, allowing it to hold the second through fourth slots of the chart.

Just below the WWE was VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” which remained steady at the 0.7 it declined to last week. “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC launched beyond its previous 0.6 to grab a 0.7, while “Below Deck Mediterranean” on Bravo failed to do the same, keeping with its 0.6.

Another TLC contender, “The Family Chantel,” once more topped the list of recurring 0.4’s, a group which included “Teen Mom” on MTV, “American Dad” on TBS, and “Girls’ Cruise” on VH1. “Straight Up Steve Austin” slipped a bit on USA, landing in with the 0.4 pack after its 0.5 last week. Meanwhile, just below, “Final Space” on Adult Swim and “Fast N’ Loud” on Discovery Channel continued to vie with each other for the top 0.3 position, with the latter coming out ahead this time.
