A “Fixer Upper” special featuring Tim Tebow finished outside the top 25 in total viewers in the same-day ratings for Jan. 29. A big week for cable news, including State of the Union coverage, bumped it out.

The show made a big move, however, with three days of delayed viewing. “Fixer Upper” moved up to sixth place in viewers with 4.56 million. Its 1.34 million-viewer gain was the largest of any show in the top 25. It also added 0.3 to its adults 18-49 total, moving up four places.

Fox News coverage of the State of the Union remained at the top of the rankings — no surprise there, given the large lead it had in the same-day charts.
