ESPN’s broadcast of the Green Bay vs. San Francisco “Monday Night Football” game easily won the Monday cable ratings this week, posting a 4.1 rating in adults 18-49 with 11.88 million viewers – up five-tenths from last week’s “MNF” broadcast. The network’s additional “Monday Night Kickoff” pregame lead-in and a late-night edition of “SportsCenter” rounded out the top 3 of the night with 1.4 and 1.3s.

Fox Sports’ broadcast of last night’s Dodgers vs. Brewers MLB playoff game also landed fairly high in the charts with a 1.0 and 4.21 million viewers. On USA, “WWE Monday Night Raw” maintained a 0.9 peak rating for the second week in a row, while VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” held steady with another 0.8.

Elsewhere, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” was even again with a 0.5.
