This week was no different than the last few, with the NFL running proud and strong at the forefront of the Monday cable ratings.
ESPN’s broadcast of the Seattle Seahawks facing off against the San Francisco 49ers scored a powerful 5.1 rating in adults 18-49, blowing easily past the 4.5 of last week’s top game, in which the Cowboys played the Giants. The score was also more than double that of the second place entry, as “Monday Night Kickoff” rose from 2.2 to 2.4. Finally, in third place, “SportsCenter 12AM” remained steady with a 1.4.
Beyond the ESPN trifecta, “Monday Night RAW” on USA continued to occupy the fourth slot of the chart with its seemingly perpetual 0.8. VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” on the other hand, ascended from 0.5 to 0.6, while “Below Deck” on Bravo tumbled from 0.6 to 0.5. A bit further along, “Holiday Baking Championship” managed to fight its way from 0.3 to 0.4.
The foremost 0.3 of the night came from a consistent “Street Outlaws” on Discovery, where it was joined once again by “Cartel Crew” on VH1. “Street Outlaws: Memphis” on Discovery and “Christmas Cookie Challenge” on Food Network also posted 0.3’s, coming in behind “Rock the Block” on HGTV as it rose from 0.2 to 0.3. Towards the bottom of the chart, “People Magazine Investigates” on Investigation Discovery slipped from 0.3 to 0.2, where it landed among “Paw Patrol” and “Blues Clues & You” on Nickelodeon.
