“Monday Night Football” kept a tight hold on the no. 1 spot in the Monday cable ratings this week.

The ESPN broadcast of the Titans vs. Cowboys game scored a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49, up four-tenths from last week’s “MNF” game. The network’s usual pre-game “Monday Night Kickoff” (1.7) and post-game “SportsCenter” (1.2) specials rounded out the top 3 of the night.

Elsewhere, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” rose two-tenths from its previous 0.9 to a 1.1 with its season finale. USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” went the other way, and fell a tenth from a 1.0 to a 0.9 peak rating this week. Meanwhile, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” and MTV’s “Teen Mom” both maintained the same 0.5s they had scored a week ago.
