After the strength of its reunion special last week, “WWE Raw” was forced from the top of the Monday cable ratings.
Instead, this week’s champion was “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” which brought home a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. The tenth of a point it gained since its previous episode was enough to bring VH1 to the top, and to allow it to elbow past the WWE. Instead, the wrestling series scored a pair of 0.8’s and a 0.7 during its three hours on the air, capturing the second through fourth slots but falling far below the 1.2 and 1.1 ratings it posted during its last broadcast.
Elsewhere, Shark Week was a major event on Discovery Channel, allowing it to seize five spots in the top 25, starting with “Legend of Deep Blue” at 0.6. On Bravo, “Below Deck Mediterranean” held its gains at 0.6, while “90 Day Fiance: Other Way?” did the same on TLC.
“Girls’ Cruise” brought in another 0.4 for VH1, even as “Teen Mom” on MTV picked back up to 0.4 from the 0.3 it stumbled to in its last outing. The last of the 0.4’s went to “The Family Chantel” of TLC, which held there since its premiere, and “Final Space” of Adult Swim, which ticked up one-tenth of a point week-to-week.
VH1’s “Love & Listings” premiered at 0.3, keeping it just ahead of the consistent “American Dad” on TBS. A bit further down, “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” held to 0.2’s on HGTV, as did both “Pawn Stars” and “American Pickers” on History Channel.
