This week, yet another contender was able to defeat “WWE RAW” and take the top slot of the Monday cable ratings.

Instead of the NFL Preseason, however, this time it was MTV’s 2019 “Video Music Awards.” The music awards special was able to take the top slot by scoring a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, earning enough to keep ahead but still falling behind its 1.0 from 2018. “RAW” on USA held the second, third, and fourth slot of the chart with a respective 0.9, 0.8, and 0.7. The 0.9 peak was in line with its performance last week.

The fifth slot on the chart went to “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC, which was consistent with the score the show rose to previously. Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean” lurked just beneath it with a consecutive 0.6, even as VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” hemorrhaged 0.2 to 0.5. “The Family Chantel” once again brought TLC to the forefront of the recurring 0.4’s, with “Straight Up Steve Austin” on USA and “American Dad” on TBS following suit.

“Fast N’ Loud” on Discovery Channel, meanwhile, rose from 0.3 to 0.4, trading trajectories with “Kids Baking Championship” on Food Network as it rose from 0.2 to 0.3. “House Hunters” on HGTV also rose from 0.2 to 0.3, leaving “House Hunters International” to continue lilting at 0.2 by itself. Adult Swim was able to garner another 0.3 from “Final Space,” while “American Pickers” on History and “Twisted Sisters” on Investigation Discovery each held at 0.2.
