Despite the premiere of a new season of “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” it was “WWE RAW” at the top of the Monday cable ratings.
The USA wrestling series, which stalled at the second slot recently, was able to reclaim the top of the charts by scoring a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. This was in line with its performance from last week, allowing it to seize second place as well, while VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” debuted at a 0.8, underperforming since the 1.1 of its last season premiere. “WWE RAW” grabbed the fourth slot as well, while “Below Deck Mediterranean” on Bravo remained at 0.6 and seized the fifth.
Elsewhere, TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” procured the sole 0.5 for the night, falling one-tenth of a point week-to-week. “Girls’ Cruise” on VH1 was king among 0.4’s, matching with its last performance and coming out just ahead of “The Family Chantel” on TLC and “Teen Mom” on MTV, both of which also remained steady. TBS’s “American Dad” was the only 0.4 to have upgraded from a 0.3.
In the aftermath of Shark Week, “Fast N’ Loud” returned to Discovery at 0.3, while “Love & Listings” brought VH1 another consecutive 0.3. Adult Swim’s “Final Space” collapsed from 0.4 to 0.3, but “American Pickers” on History, “Chopped” on Food Network, and “Aaron Needs a Job” on Discovery all held consecutive 0.2’s.
