ESPN led the Monday cable ratings this week with its broadcast of the Home Run Derby. The annual sporting event scored the top spot with a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49, but while this was significantly higher than any other broadcast in the night, it was down noticeably from the 2.6 that last year’s derby had scored.

USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” followed behind it in the top 25 with a 1.0 peak rating across its 3-hour broadcast, up two-tenths from its previous 0.8. The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” was also up to a 0.7 vs. last week’s 0.6. On VH1, the second reunion episode for this season’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” was down a tenth to a 1.0 this week.

Following its second season premiere last week, MTV’s “Floribama Shore” fell from a 0.5 to a 0.4, while “Teen Mom II” ticked down two-tenths to a 0.6.
