At long last, the WWE reclaimed the top of the Monday cable ratings.

“Monday Night Raw” and USA returned to their former glory at the peak of the night, holding a trifecta across all three slots. The wrestling series received a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 at 8 p.m., a 0.8 at 9 p.m., and a 0.7 at 10 p.m., maxing out one-tenth of a point higher than the 0.8 it received last week.

Without any NBA playoff games, there was a lot more room for other shows to breathe. “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” on VH1 took the fourth slot, sliding downward a bit from its previous 0.8. On Bravo, “Vanderpump Rules” suffered similarly, falling back from two weeks at 0.6 to 0.5, but the downward spiral did not stir “Teen Mom” from its chokehold on 0.5.

Over at HBO, “Chernobyl” battled its way uphill from a premiere at 0.2 to reach 0.3, while “Best Baker in America” debuted a new season on Food Network at 0.3. “Street Outlaws” on Discovery also had a strong night, rising from 0.4 to 0.5. HGTV’s “House Hunters” obtained its perpetual 0.3, while “T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle” broke free from 0.4 and ascended to 0.5.
