ESPN had a great night, with its monopoly on the top 3 continuing from last week.

In the first slot was the Washington Redskins vs. the Philadelphia Eagles game, resulting in the defeat of the Redskins and any other show that tried to stand against Monday Night Football. The broadcast of the NFL game came in at 3.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, a significant increase from last week’s Titans/Texans game, which scored a 3.1.

In the next slot was the network’s pre-game show, “Monday Night Kickoff,” which saw a more modest increase of 0.3 to land at 1.5. Rounding out the top 3 was “SportsCenter 12AM,” which ticked up one-tenth of a point to 1.2.

Outside of sports, “Love and Hip Hop” on VH1 lost a full 0.2 from its premiere, tumbling down to a 0.8 rating. “WWE Entertainment” on USA dropped down to 0.8 in its 8 p.m. time slot, but rose to 0.9 in its 9 p.m. slot, and at 10 p.m., held its 0.8 rating from the previous week. “Holiday Baking Champion” on Food Network rose a tenth to land at 0.5.
