Like it has the previous few nights, it was college football that led the Monday cable ratings this week.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Virginia Tech vs Florida State scored the top spot of the night with a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.58 million viewers. The network’s additional post-game coverage followed closely behind with a 1.4, while USA’s weekly “WWE Monday Night Raw” rounded out the top 3, scoring the same 1.0 peak rating as it had the week before.

After taking a minor hit last week, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” managed to tick back up one-tenth from a 0.9 to a 1.0. AMC’s “Better Call Saul” held steady with another 0.4, while “Lodge 49” (0.1) stayed low. On the Discovery Channel, both “Street Outlaws” (0.6) and “Diesel Brothers” (0.4) were down a tenth from their previous episodes.
