The Memorial Day cable ratings saw a familiar story play out yet again: the lack of the NBA allowed for the WWE to ascend to the top of the Monday charts.

A USA broadcast of “Monday Night RAW” seized a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 at 8 p.m. and a 0.7 at 9 p.m., taking the first and second slot. Despite this ascent, though, the wrestling series failed to top the 0.9 it peaked at last week. Sharing the top 3 was “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” on VH1, which made it there simply by holding onto its 0.7.

Further below, “Diesel Brothers” on Discovery Channel climbed its way up to a 0.6 from last week’s 0.3, doubling its score, even as “T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle” on VH1 held at the 0.4 it previously fell to. “Teen Mom” on MTV continued at 0.4, while HBO’s mini-series “Chernobyl” churned out yet another 0.3.

“American Pickers” and “Pawn Stars” on History Channel lifted from 0.2’s to grab a pair of 0.3’s, keeping pace with Food Network’s “Best Baker in America.” “Bargain Mansions” of HGTV, on the other hand, managed to rise from 0.2 to 0.3.
