* The children's TV show ''LazyTown'' is also known to be popular with teenagers and young adults as well as parents; possibly from it's quirkiness and LargeHam villain. Though given Sportacus's and Robbie's tight pants we can be reasonably sure that some of the [[ParentService adult appeal]] is deliberate.

* The children's TV show ''LazyTown'' is also known to be popular with teenagers and young adults as well as parents. At least some of this is due to entirely [[{{Lolicon}} unwholesome]] reasons, though given Sportacus's and Robbie's tight pants we can be reasonably sure that some of the [[ParentService adult appeal]] is deliberate.
** Though [[EarWorm some of the songs are catchy]] as well. "You Are a Pirate" is the only reason some people have even heard of this show.

Added DiffLines:

* Any preschool show aired on Creator/{{YTV}} in the 1990's will have a huge following of adults who grew up with them, as unlike most preschool shows on other networks, these shows were well-written and didn't talk down to the audience. The ones with the largest followings are ''Series/TheBigComfyCouch'', ''Series/UnderTheUmbrellaTree'', ''Series/TheAdventuresOfDudleyTheDragon'' and the infamous ''Series/PJKatiesFarm''.

* ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' is watched by many adult fans of parent show ''Series/DoctorWho''. When you consider that the show has ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' references, that may be intentional.

to:

* ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' is watched by many adult fans of parent show ''Series/DoctorWho''. It was particularly popular among long-term fans of the show who thought that it had many nostalgic elements of the twentieth-century show that the revived one changed (twenty-five minute episodes with frequent cliffhanger endings, less focus on romantic shipping, less angsty regular characters). When you consider that the show has ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' references, that may be intentional.

Added DiffLines:

* Ragdoll Productions' other show, ''Boohbah'', has fans in their early teens, who probably like the show for its' surrealism.

* The Food Network's initial run of ''IronChef'' carried advertisements generally aimed at over-40-housewives, who were Food Network's primary demographic at the time. When the show was adopted by younger viewers due to its competition aspect and the NarmCharm of its presentation, Food Network was caught flat-footed and took a lengthy period of time to properly capitalise on the show's success by making it a centerpiece of their lineup. Rapid NetworkDecay soon followed.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and ASongOfIceAndFire are very popular among adolescents. It's mainly due to growing up in the social media that didn't exist when shows like the Sopranos, The Wire and Oz were on the air. Basically, the exact opposite situation of Periphery audience The Hunger Games has received.

* In England, ''DealOrNoDeal'' is the show of choice, possibly due to the presenter (Noel Edmonds) having presented 90's show ''Noel's House Party''. Probably more down to the fact that he's able to make a show about someone opening boxes seem quite tense and nail-biting. Even when all the big prizes have gone.

*** YMMV on whether this is bad or not, as having a harmless legal outlet probably reduces harmful and negative behavior.
