It was a live college football broadcast that topped the cable ratings Monday night.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Orange Bowl game between Florida and Virginia led the night’s cable shows with a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.07 million viewers. Additionally, the network’s pre-game and post-game specials rounded out the chart’s top 3 with 1.0 and 0.9 ratings, respectively.

On USA, “WWE Monday Night Raw” rebounded from its downtick last Monday by hitting a 0.8 peak rating this week – up two-tenths from the 0.6 peak rating it scored a week ago. Elsewhere, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” posted the same 0.5 as its previous outing, while Bravo’s “Below Deck” ticked back up from a 0.4 to a 0.5.
