ESPN’s broadcast of the game between the New York Jets and the Arizona Cardinals made “Monday Night Football” hit its season low with a 3.0 rating in adults 18-49 and just avoided an all-time low in total viewers with 8.4 million (the Sept. 26 game had 8.05 million viewers opposite a presidential debate). The 18-49 rating is three tenths lower than what the Tampa Bay vs. Carolina game scored last week.

Meanwhile, TBS’ coverage of Game 3 between the Blue Jays and Indians in the ALCS grabbed a 1.2 in the demographic. On USA, “WWE Monday Night Raw” managed to tick up from its previous 1.0 peak, to consistent 1.2 ratings throughout its three-hour broadcast. “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” however, dipped from a 1.2 to a 1.1 on VH1, and a late-night edition of “SportsCenter” grabbed a 1.0 for ESPN.
