ESPN managed to stay on top of the cable ratings this week with their continued “Monday Night Football” coverage, though the Indianapolis vs New York Jets game took a major hit, falling from last week’s 4.2 to a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49. It’s not a season low, but it is one of the worst numbers that ESPN has raked in this season.

Both The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” and VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” followed behind with 1.2s in the night, as the latter ticked down one tenth from its previous 1.3. Meanwhile, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” also fell slightly from a 1.1 peak rating to a 1.0 this week.
