>This past week in cable, ESPN’s Monday Night Football drifted down to a 4.9 rating with Adults 18-49, still the highest-rated cable program by far.  NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football rose to a 2.9 rating.

AMC’s Walking Dead continues to soften but remains the top-rated scripted series on cable.  About one rating point behind Walking Dead, FX’s Sons of Anarchy nonetheless continues to rise slowly.  Moving in completely the opposite direction, Hell on Wheels (Sundays at 10 on AMC after Walking Dead) is collapsing, from a 1.9 two weeks ago to a 1.2 this week.
