“Monday Night Football” easily kept ESPN on top of this week’s Monday cable ratings.

The network’s broadcast of the “MNF” game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks topped the night’s cable chart with a 4.4 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 14.03 million viewers. That puts “Monday Night Football” back up quite a bit week-to-week, from the 3.5 rating and 10.93 million viewer audience that the Rams vs. Ravens game won last week’s Monday cable chart with.

ESPN grabbed the night’s following 2 spots as well, with its pre-game “Monday Night Kickoff” coverage (1.9) and a late-night edition of “SportsCenter” (1.5). Elsewhere, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” managed to score the same 0.8 peak rating in its first hour that it did last week, while posting 0.7 and 0.6 ratings in the 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. hours.

On Bravo, “Below Deck” (0.6) managed to tick up one-tenth week-to-week, but the same could not be said for VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” which slipped from a 0.6 to a 0.5.
