Sports dominate the top of this week's cable chart, with seven of the top 15 programs. MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL tops all shows with 13.2 million viewers and a 4.7 rating in Adults 18-49. That is a vast improvement from the previous week's numbers of below 9 million viewers.

The MLB Playoffs are getting viewers, with the hot Giants vs Mets Wildcard game, on Wednesday night, scoring 7.4 million viewers. The Cubs vs Giants NLDS push both of their games within the top 15 spots, for TBS.
