Meanwhile, its 2.0 rating in the all-important adults 18-49 demographic edged out 'Hoarders,' which had days earlier set a new mark for A&E in the demo.

Seagal, a formerly pony-tailed martial-arts expert who starred in a number of theatrically successful films in the early 1990s, including 'Hard to Kill' and 'Under Siege,' continues to churn out action films, most of which are shot overseas and debut in the U.S. on DVD. He now serves as a fully commissioned deputy of the Jefferson Parish Sherrif's office.

As for A&E, its big week also includes the season 8 premiere of 'Intervention' Monday, which grew its audience by 14 percent over its season-seven bow, with 2.5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49.
