There were a variety of upticks and downticks in this week’s Monday cable ratings.
“Monday Night Football” kept ESPN on top of the night’s cable chart, with the network’s broadcast of the Green Bay vs. Minnesota game raking in a 3.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 13.57 million viewers. That puts “MNF” up a bit week-to-week from the 3.4 rating and 11.06 million viewer audience that last week’s game scored.
Additionally, ESPN’s “Monday Night Kickoff” pregame special and a late-night “SportsCenter” secured the chart’s second and third-place spots for the network, with 1.7 and 1.3 ratings, respectively. Meanwhile, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” scored a peak 0.6 rating across its 3-hour broadcast, down one-tenth from its 0.7 peak rating last week.
On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” matched its 0.6 from a week ago, but the same could not be said for Bravo’s “Below Deck,” which ticked down from a 0.6 to a 0.4.
