During the week of Oct 25-31, ESPN’s MNF rebounded from a relatively poor showing a week back among 18-49s (live+SD) to score 9.39mln in the demo—a total that bested the 2nd- and 3rd-place finishers’ combined results. TNT’s Heat-Celtics game (4.35mln) and the impressive bow of AMC original “Walking Dead” (3.57mln) did show some life, though, settling well ahead of TNT’s Rockets-Lakers matchup (2.71mln) and an ep of the ever-popular “SportsCenter” (2.66mln) on ESPN. History’s “Pawn Stars” (2.63mln) took 6th, MTV’s “Jersey Shore 2: Reunion” (2.42mln) 7th and an additional “Pawn” (2.38mln) ep 8th. Magic-Heat on ESPN (2.22mln) and the 2nd hour of WWE action on USA (2.16mln) completed the top 10. (Data provided by Nielsen)
