Surprise, surprise! Not really. ESPN’s MNF led cable in delivery among 18-49s (live+SD) as usual, this time from Nov 8-14 and with 8.06mln while featuring the Steelers-Bengals. AMC’s “Walking Dead” (3.35mln) again took 2nd, and some red-haired comedian lured 3.29mln in the demo for the premiere of TBS’ “Conan” while the show’s 2nd night delivered 2.13mln to take 9th. NFL Net’s season-opener featuring the Falcons-Ravens notched 4th with 2.75mln, the post-MNF ep of ESPN’s “SportsCenter” (2.71mln) 5th and TNT’s coverage of the Heat-Celtics (2.26mln) 6th. “Monday Night Countdown” (2.22mln) bolstered ESPN’s Mon night dominance, and FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” (2.15mln) and the 2nd hour of WWE action on USA (2.12mln) completed the top 10.
