ESPN’s coverage of the College Football Playoff Championship game between Clemson and Alabama landed on top in the Monday cable ratings this week, scoring an 8.0 rating in adults 18-49. Despite this still being huge  for the network as well, it’s yet another year where the broadcast’s ratings have fallen, with this year’s broadcast falling three-tenths lower than last year’s 8.3.

The pre and post-game coverage of the championship game continued to perform well on ESPN also, scoring 4.5-1.4 ratings throughout the night, respectively.

On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop” dipped from a 1.4 to a 1.1, while “America’s Next Top Model” fell back down to a 0.5, after just ticking back up to a 0.6 in the previous week. “WWE Monday Night Raw” also dipped from its previous numbers, this time scoring a 1.0 peak rating throughout its three-hour broadcast instead of last week’s 1.1.
