* MerchandiseDriven ''{{Tokusatsu}}'' is aimed squarely at kids. However, they cast a lot of [[{{Bishonen}} pretty-boy actors]] to [[ParentService appeal]] to the ''mothers'' of the aforementioned kids, who often watch the show at home with their children. And if not the mothers, then it works well with the older sisters of these kids. And if the fathers stay around long enough to watch it at times, the actresses fill that niche nicely, along with the gravure to go with it. A second periphery demographic is the small but solid overseas fanbase, who tend to be in their late teens or mid-20s, overlapping somewhat with the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' fandom as well.

And if ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'', one of the first observed instances of this trope and launcher of a fair bit of FollowTheLeader. It also works the other way around, with fathers stay around long enough and older boys being drawn to watch it at times, these shows thanks to the actresses fill that niche nicely, along with cute young singers and ''gravure'' swimsuit models who play the gravure to go with it.female leads.

** It should be pointed out that some of the SuperSetai and KamenRider entries into this trope may be due to air times. Prior to the mid-2000s, they were largely seen as family shows (for Americans, think of them in the same way as TheIncredibleHulk TV show and you're not far off). Originally they aired in an evening time slot, so it would be perfect time for family viewing. Around 1997 [[note]] for Sentai only, Kamen Rider first aired in the time slot in 2000, replacing ''Moerou! Robocon''.[[/note]], they were moved to 7:30AM and 8:00AM on Sunday mornings, often seen as the SaturdayMorningCartoon equivalent.

* A growing number of Western fans in their 20-30s grew up watching ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. The fact that they brought back Jason David Frank (as a regular cast member for [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder season 12]]) and JohnnyYongBosch (in a guest spot for [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive the 15th anniversary]]) would suggest that the producers are well aware of the older ''Power Ranger'' fans.

* According to the fan section of the PBS website for ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', most of the viewers of the show were surprisingly not in the 2-5 range it was aimed for, but rather in the 9-11 range. It helps that the scenes inside the shop with the toys were very interesting and hilarious, and that DJ and Katie, two of the main kids in the show, were around this age. It was also big with adults, due to it's nostalgic 50's theme and some of the songs being inspired by ''Film/{{Grease}}''.

* Most shows [[GirlShowGhetto aimed for tween girls]] can be this towards boys. Shows like ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', ''Series/ICarly'', ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'', ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', ''Series/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.)

** Same goes for, in a slightly different context, with ''MisterRogersNeighborhood''. Compared to Sesame Street, Mister Rogers had more {{Affectionate Parod|y}}ies, although [[Series/SaturdayNightLive some]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy were controversial]].
