“Monday Night Football” stayed at the top of a mostly steady night in the cable ratings this week.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Patriots vs. Bills game posted a 3.5 rating in adults 18-49 with 10.85 million, even with last week’s “MNF” broadcast in the demo, and scoring over two whole points higher than any of the night’s other shows. The network’s pre-game “Monday Night Kickoff” special and a late-night edition of “SportsCenter” rounded out the top 3 with a pair of 1.3s.

USA”s “WWE Monday Night Raw” held steady with the same peak 1.0 rating it had scored last Monday, while VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” maintained a 0.9 for the second week in a row. Both Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” and MTV’s “Teen Mom” matched the 0.5s of their previous episodes as well.
