* Although ''BeakmansWorld'' was generally aimed at 9-to-14 year old school kids, high schoolers and college students liked it too. Maybe it was because they finally got what they couldn't get in middle school; maybe it was because the main character looked like someone who'd do drugs; maybe it was the assistants (no, not the rat); or even a combination of all three.
* Similarly, ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy'' still has a significant following among young men, which may have been a factor in creating a similar series more directly targeted at them.

Added DiffLines:

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


Added DiffLines:

* A fair number of ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' fans seem perfectly content to watch the show with their middle or even elementary school-aged children, despite the [[{{Gorn}} extreme violence]], TV-MA rating, and the fact that Robert Kirkman, creator of the comic book the show is based on, has been outspoken about how the show is not appropriate for children nor intended for them.

* Despite having far more black characters and cast members than white, most of the attention and sky-high praise heaped upon ''Series/TheWire'' and its gritty, urban subject matter came from white fans, [[ButForMeItWasTuesday leaving a sizable chunk of the show's black viewers to wonder just what the big deal is.]]

* 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.
