Once again, “Monday Night Football” ensured that ESPN had an easy win amongst the Monday cable ratings.

The big game of the night featured the Philadelphia Eagles facing off against the New York Giants for a 3.5 rating in adults 18-49. While this absolutely demolished the entirety of the night’s competition, it didn’t quite stand up to the 4.4 of last week’s Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks game. The next two slots also went to ESPN, as “Monday Night Kickoff” took second place as it fell from 1.9 to 1.6, and “SportsCenter 12AM” took third while dropping from 1.5 to 1.2.

Just outside the top 3, as usual, was “Monday Night RAW” on USA. The WWE series took the fourth, fifth, and sixth slots with a respective 0.7, 0.7, and 0.6, all of which fell below the 0.8 the series peaked at last week. Further down was “Below Deck” of Bravo as it held out at 0.6, and VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” which regained the ground it lost previously and returned to 0.6 from 0.5.

On Food Network, “Holiday Baking Championship” was steady at 0.4, while both “Robot Chicken” and “Mike Tyson Mysteries” returned to Adult Swim for a pair of 0.3’s. VH1’s “Cartel Crew” continued at 0.3, where “Love it or List it” of HGTV landed by ticking up from 0.2 to 0.3. Towards the bottom of the chart, “People Magazine Investigates” rose from 0.2 to 0.3 on Investigation Discovery, and “Dirty Mudder Truckers” returned to Discovery for a 0.2.
