With nearly 16 million viewers tuning in throughout the night, ESPN’s broadcast of the Rose Bowl game between USC and Penn State landed on top in the cable ratings in a football-heavy Monday night. Scoring a 4.1 rating in adults 18-49, the game was up five-tenths from the 3.6 that last year’s game raked in.

Similarly, the network’s coverage of the Sugar Bowl game between the Tigers and the Sooners scored two-tenths higher than last year’s 2.6 with a 2.8 rating. ESPN practically dominated over the entire night as well, not only with its broadcasts of the actual football games themselves, but with the network’s pre and post-game specials, all of which landed 2.3-1.1 ratings throughout the night, respectively.

On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop” also ticked up two-tenths from its previous 1.2 to a 1.4, while The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” increased to a 1.1 from a 1.0. After taking a hit last week also, “America’s Next Top Model” managed to tick back up to a 0.6 once again.

Rounding out the night, USA’s weekly broadcast of “WWE Monday Night Raw” held steady with a 1.1 peak rating, while maintaining the same rating throughout the rest of its three-hour broadcast.
