Once again, it was the NFL at the top of the Monday cable ratings.

ESPN managed to scoop up all three of the chart’s uppermost slots, with the peak performance of the night coming from their broadcast of the Cleveland Browns vs. the New York Jets. The game scored a 4.1 rating in adults 18-49, easily winning the night but falling a bit behind the 4.4 scored by the Broncos vs. Raiders match from last week. “Monday Night Kickoff” grabbed a 2.0 to take second place (compared to its previous 1.1), and “SportsCenter 12 AM” followed behind in third with a 1.4.

Even without the NFL, however, it wouldn’t have been the WWE at the top. “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC would have had that honor, having risen from its usual 0.7 to 0.8 to narrowly beat the consecutive 0.8 of “Monday Night RAW” on USA. Further along, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” returned from 0.5 to 0.6 on VH1, as did “Below Deck Mediterranean” on Bravo.

“A Very Brady Renovation” slipped a bit from the 0.6 of its debut, landing at 0.4, where it found itself side-by-side with “Girls’ Cruise” as it ticked up from 0.3 to 0.4. On their heels was a horde of recurring 0.3’s, including those of “Final Space” on Adult Swim, “Love & Listings” on VH1, “Kids’ Baking Championship” on Food Network, and “Twisted Sisters” on Investigation Discovery. “Fast N’ Loud” also brought in a 0.3 for Discovery, while “Straight Up Steve Austin” on USA slid from a normally steadfast 0.4 to 0.3.
