Unlike previous weeks, it was USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” that managed to claim all three of the top spots in the Monday cable ratings. “Raw” ticked up noticeably from its previous 1.1 to a 1.8 peak rating in adults 18-49 this week, with a high of 4.803 million viewers as the show celebrated its 25th anniversary.
After taking a week off, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” returned with a 1.0, the same as what its previous episode had also scored. “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” managed to hold steady with another 0.9 as well, also on VH1.
“The Alienist” officially premiered to a 0.5 and 2.09 million viewers on TNT. The channel also aired the debut episode as a “sneak peek” Sunday night after the SAG Awards.
The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” raked in a 0.8 yet again, while Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.7 to a 0.6 this time around. On MTV, both “Teen Mom” and “Siesta Key” held steady with their 0.7 and 0.3 ratings, respectively.
