Last night’s live coverage and post-analysis of the President’s State of the Union address easily led the Tuesday cable ratings this week. Fox News scored the top 4 spots of the night, starting with its actual broadcast of the address scoring a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and followed by the network’s other special post-address coverage and analysis, which grabbed 1.6 – 1.0 ratings. Similarly, CNN’s coverage of the address scored 0.9 – 0.5s throughout the night, while MSNBC’s coverage peaked with a 0.5.

Meanwhile, The History Channel’s “The Curse of Oak Island” still managed to land fairly high in the ratings with a 0.8, just one-tenth less than its previous 0.9. On USA, “WWE Smackdown” held steady with another 0.8 too, while MTV’s “The Challenge: Vendettas” ticked up one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.6. “The Detour” maintained a 0.4 on TBS, and was just barely able to land itself a spot in the Top 25 of the night.

In addition, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” took a minor hit from a 0.6 to a 0.5, while Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” held steady with a 0.5.
