The AFC/NFC Pro Bowl on ESPN Sunday night took the top ratings spot for 18-49s Live+SD for the week of January 25-31, according to Nielsen, with 3.495 million average viewers. But NBC Sports notes that overall the Pro Bowl had week ratings this year. It did beat the Republican Presidential debate on Fox News on Thursday night (which lacked Trump), which got 2.875 million average 18-49 viewers in Live+SD. Other top 10 programs include three airings of WWE Raw on USA Monday night, with the 9pm slot coming out slightly on top with 1.946 million average viewers.

On the scripted side, VH1 was a winner last week for the demo, with three shows in the top 10: “Love and Hip Hop” (1.9 million), “Stevie J and Joseline Go Hollywood” (1.689 million), and “K.Michelle: My Life” (1.498 million). Check out the full chart below. (Source: Nielsen)
