Last night’s Steelers vs. Buccaneers game easily kept “Monday Night Football” at the top of the cable ratings this week.

ESPN’s broadcast of the game won the top spot of the night with a 4.4 rating in the adults 18-49 demo – up another four-tenths from last week’s “MNF” game – and 12.01 million viewers. It scored more than five times better than any of the night’s other broadcasts, including even ESPN’s “Monday Night Kickoff” special, which landed second in the night with a 1.6, and a late-night edition of “SportsCenter” (1.5).

Elsewhere, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” took a noticeable hit this week, falling two-tenths from its previous 1.0 peak rating to a 0.8 this time around. VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” similarly slipped from a 1.0 to a 0.8, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” dropped a tenth to a 0.5.

On AMC, “Better Call Saul” ticked up for the first time in several weeks, from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5, making it the show’s highest-rated episode since its season premiere in August. Outside of the top 25, “Lodge 49” (0.1) stayed low.
