ESPN’s UFC pay-per-view preliminaries coverage took the night’s top spot with a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. A&E’s “Live PD” came second with a 0.6 as well – even with its Saturday broadcast from the week before – and 2.08 million viewers.

Additionally, ESPN rounded out the night’s top 3 with its college basketball coverage (0.5, 1.69 million). Elsewhere, the premiere broadcast of “Skyscraper” on HBO raked in a 0.4 with 1.49 million viewers, making it one of the network’s higher-rated movie premieres in recent months.
