HGTV is fixing up fans of remodeling show Fixer Upper with more episodes.
The Scripps Interactive service said it has ordered another 13 episodes of Fixer Upper from High Noon Entertainment. The show tracks the husband and wife team of Chip and Joanna Gaines as they balance their successful renovation, restoration and remodeling business with parenting four young children.
Ratings continue to grow each week for the series, with its most recent outing at 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 22, delivering a series’ best rating of .58 among adults 25 to 53. Since its premiere on April 24, more than 10.3 million viewers have tuned in to watch some part of Fixer Upper, which currently ranks as a top cable program in its aforementioned time slot among upscale women 25 to 54.
“Fixer Upper is an exceptional series that instantly captivated our younger viewers,” said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. “Chip and Joanna are talented and their family is very relatable, so viewers find themselves pulled into the stories about the challenges and victories that the Gaines’ encounter while renovating these homes. It’s the kind of compelling television that keeps the audience coming back week after week.”
