* The Canadian TV series ''TrailerParkBoys'' is very popular with both criminals ''and'' police officers. The former are able to identify with the main characters (the producers even describe the show as "''Cops'' from the criminal's point of view"), while the cops enjoy seeing depictions of what they have to deal with in their jobs.

* ''TheGoldenGirls'' and ''SexAndTheCity'' have such a huge CampGay demographic, it's been frequently implied (often by PeripheryHatedom) that everyone else is their periphery demographic.

* Most shows [[GirlShowGhetto aimed for tween girls]] can be this towards boys. Shows like ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', ''Series/ICarly'', ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'', ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', ''ShakeItUp'', etc., are watched by a surprising number of boys because they a) like/have a {{celeb crush}} on one or more of the lead/supporting girls in the show, b) want to hear them sing, c) enjoy their antics, or d) all of the above. The FanService itself on the girls helps too. (This also applies to non-Creator/{{Disney}}[=/=]{{Nickelodeon}} shows.)

* While not to the same extent as the above two, ''{{Victorious}}'' and ''Series/BigTimeRush'' are also good contenders with periphery demographics, given their GettingCrapPastTheRadar (especially with the former) and music provided in most episodes.

* ''SesameStreet'' intentionally invoked this trope, in order to create a show that kids and parents would watch and enjoy together. This kids show grew its following gradually; when the original kid viewers grew up to be adults, they would subsequently watch the show with their own children.
