Dwayne Johnson made headlines earlier this week for acquiring the XFL, and the good news kept on coming for the former WWE star, as his NBC show “Titan Games” was the highest-rated programming on Monday night.
The athletic competition series scored a 0.7 rating among adults 19-49 and around 3.7 million total viewers. That’s pretty much exactly even on last week’s episode. NBC followed it up with a replay of “American Ninja Warrior” (USA vs. the World), which delivered a 0.5 rating and 2.7 million pairs of eyeballs.
