ESPN maintained its dominance over the rest of the networks in the Monday cable ratings this week, with its continued coverage of “Monday Night Football.” Despite falling noticeably down to a 2.6 last week as well, the network’s coverage of last night’s game ticked back up to a 4.2 rating in adults 18-49. A late-night edition of “SportsCenter,” meanwhile, grabbed the second-highest rating of the night with a 1.3.

VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” held steady with two episodes this week, as one maintained a 1.2 for the second week in a row, while the other ticked up one tenth to a 1.3. The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws,” however, fell three-tenths from a 1.2 to a 0.9, and on USA, “WWE Monday Night Raw” scored consistent 0.9s throughout its three-hour broadcast.

The premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” scored a 0.6 for VH1, beating the average for the show’s last several seasons on The CW.
