This week, the reign of the NFL atop the Monday cable ratings continued.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Cleveland Browns playing the San Francisco 49ers scored a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49, rising far beyond the reach of anything else on the chart. This was also a stronger score than the 3.5 from when the Bengals faced the Steelers last week. In second place, “Monday Night Kickoff” held the same slot while rising from 1.7 back to its previous 1.8, while “SportsCenter 12AM” rounded out ESPN’s hold on the top 3 by ascending from 1.0 to 1.2.

Further down, USA’s “Monday Night RAW” found itself in fifth place as it tumbled from a peak score of 0.9 to 0.8. It did still manage to keep ahead of “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC, however, which maintained the 0.7 it previously collapsed to. On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” told a similar story, remaining at the 0.6 it recently fell to, while Bravo’s “Below Deck” debuted a new season at 0.5, one-tenth of a point lower than the most recent episode of “Below Deck Mediterranean.”

Elsewhere, “Halloween Baking Championship” ascended from 0.3 back to 0.4 on Food Network, even as both “Street Outlaws” and “Street Outlaws: Memphis” on Discovery each posted 0.3’s. “Cartel Crew” returned to VH1 with a 0.3, one-tenth of a point higher than its last episode, where it landed beside “Primal,” the latest work from Genndy Tartakovsky, on Adult Swim. Finally, towards the very bottom of the chart, “Halloween Cake-Off” found its way from 0.2 to 0.3.
