Without any major sporting events to put ESPN on top, “Monday Night RAW” made a triumphant return to the uppermost slot of the cable ratings.
The USA wrestling series held sway across the entirety of the chart’s top 3, with the 9 p.m. hour of its broadcast peaking at a 08 rating in adults 18-49. This was also true of its 10 p.m. hour, but at 8 p.m. it only scored a 0.7, which was identical to its highest performance from last week.
Below the wrestling trifecta, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” fell from 0.9 to 0.7 on VH1, and “Below Deck Mediterranean” slipped from 0.6 to 0.5. “90 Day Fiancé” of TLC ascended from 0.4 to 0.5, where it kept just ahead of the 0.5 scored by the premiere of “Girls’ Cruise” on VH1. TBS’ “American Dad” and MTV’s “Teen Mom” were the only broadcasts of the night to post 0.4’s, the former of which was one-tenth of a point higher than last week, the latter of which was stable.
On Adult Swim, “Final Space” led the pack of recurring 0.3’s, a group which included MTV’s “The Hills: New Beginnings” and Discovery Channel’s “Fast N’ Loud.” A bit further along, “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” registered a 0.2, the same rating “House Hunters” came in at for HGTV yet again.
