Once again, ESPN had a great night, holding its same trifecta in the top 3 from the previous 2 weeks.

In the first slot was the Seattle Seahawks against the Minnesota Vikings, an NFL broadcast which achieved a 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. This significantly outperformed any other showing on Monday night, although it was down 0.1 from the Redskins vs. Eagles game last week.

The next two slots, which were also held by ESPN, ticked down by the same amount. The network’s pre-game show, “Monday Night Kickoff,” scored a 1.4 compared to last week’s 1.5, while “SportsCenter 12AM” fell from 1.2 to 1.1. The rest of the top 5 was filled out by “Love and Hip Hop” on VH1, which held its 0.8 rating, and USA’s “WWE Raw,” which did the same with an identical score.

Elsewhere, “Street Outlaws: Memphis” on Discovery Channel lost one-tenth of a point, falling to 0.3, while “Holiday Baking Championship” and “Christmas Cookie Challenge” on Food Network held their respective scores of 0.5 and 0.3.
