The NFL continued its run at the top of the Monday cable ratings this week.
ESPN held a trifecta across the top three slots of the chart, starting with its broadcast of the New York Giants playing the Dallas Cowboys for a 4.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was more than double the score of anything else that aired Monday night, and easily outpaced the Miami Dolphins vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game which topped last week with a 3.1. In second place, “Monday Night Kickoff” assumed its usual spot, rising from 1.4 to 2.2, while “SportsCenter 12AM” took the third with a 1.4, up from 1.0.
Further along the chart, USA’s “Monday Night Raw” occupied the fourth through sixth slot with a peak score of 0.8, running consistent with its performance the last few weeks. On Bravo, “Below Deck” notched up from its usual 0.5 to 0.6, leaving VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” behind at 0.5.
The uppermost 0.3 of the night came from “Street Outlaws” on Discovery, where it held the line yet again. “Cartel Crew” on VH1 did the same, keeping ahead of “Holiday Baking Championship” on Food Network and “People Magazine Investigates” on Investigation Discovery. “The Devil Speaks” also began a new season on Investigation Discovery at 0.2.
