Without the NBA featuring any major outings on Monday night, the cable ratings were wrestled into submission by the WWE. “Monday Night Raw” was broadcast on USA across its typical three hours, and each of them managed to fill the top three slots on the chart. The 8 p.m. airing took the highest score by a slight margin, rating a 1.0 in adults 18-49, with the 9 p.m. airing right behind it.

At 10 p.m., the wrestling series lost one-tenth of a point in its viewership, but still maintained a trifecta in those precious top three slots. The 1.0 rating “Raw” received this week was a holdover from its peak the previous Monday, where it only rose to the second slot.

Beyond USA, “Cartel Crew” on VH1 continued to struggle, falling from 0.4 to 0.3, while “Love & Hip Hop” on the same network also slipped from 0.7 to 0.6. Food Network’s “Kid’s Baking Championship” returned to 0.4 from 0.5, decreasing by the same margin Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” did when it landed at 0.6.

“American Pickers” on History Channel scored a 0.3 to match its previous score, ending the night even with fellow History series “Pawn Stars.”
