In the overnight ratings (which don’t include the West Coast), NFL’s pigskin matchup on ABC’s Monday Night Football easily grabbed the top spots in both the 18-49 demo and total primetime broadcast viewers on Monday, September 21. The Las Vegas Raiders bested the New Orleans Saints by 34-24 in the second week of the NFL season.

As for the rest of the night, NBC’s American Ninja Warrior landed in second place in total viewers but tied in the 18-49 demo with the premiere of Fox’s L.A.’s Finest. In the 9 o’clock hour, the debut of soapy drama Filthy Rich didn’t measure up in the demo against CBS’ Love Island or the second hour of Ninja (both of which tied with a 0.5 rating) while in total viewers, it came in third place with 2.9 million viewers.
