This week, the NFL increased the margin of its lead across the Monday cable ratings.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Detroit Lions playing the Green Bay Packers scored a 4.5 rating in adults 18-49, blowing straight past its competition for the night. The score was also considerably stronger than the 3.9 of the Cleveland Browns vs. San Francisco 49ers game from last week. “Monday Night Kickoff” was still a force to be reckoned with in second place with a 2.0, however, having improved on its previous 1.8.  In third place, “SportsCenter 12AM” also grew from 1.2 to 1.5.

Elsewhere, USA’s “Monday Night RAW” continued its streak in fifth place, maintaining the 0.8 it peaked at last week. This meant that it was able to continue keeping ahead of “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC, even as the latter series rose from 0.7 to return to 0.8. Over at VH1, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” held the line at 0.6, while “Below Deck” on Bravo stayed the course at the 0.5 it premiered at.

A bit further down, Food Network’s “Halloween Baking Championship” crumbled from 0.4 to 0.3, landing in the same lane as the consistent “Street Outlaws” and “Street Outlaws: Memphis” on Discovery. “Cartel Crew” also kept VH1 at 0.3, but “Halloween Cake-Off” slipped back down from 0.3 to 0.2. Finally, at the very last rung of the chart, an episode of “Live PD” on A&E grabbed a 0.2.
