When it comes to family coverage, cartoons and TV shows are your best bet, according to the research firm that analyzed the top 10 shows in the US.
The Family Health Network (FHN) found that children are among the most popular shows for families and it was a consistent theme with the cartoons themselves.
Family members watched 4.2 billion hours of cartoons, movies, and video games during the past year.
For every episode, the network said, one family member watched an average of 7.3 hours of the program, or about two episodes per week.
In comparison, the children’s network Family Treehouse and Disney’s Animal House averaged 4.5 and 3.9 hours, respectively.
While the Family Treehouses were among the top three, the data shows that the kids network The Simpsons, the family television show Family Guy, and the animated comedy Family Guy: The Animated Series also have high viewership figures.
Both Family Tree House and Family Guy have higher viewership figures than any other animated series, according the study.
However, Family TreeHouse is a much more popular show than Family Guy.
During the past 12 months, the top 3 animated programs that have averaged more than 10 million viewers per episode were Family Guy (2.5 million), Family Tree (1.4 million), and The Simpsons (1 million).
The data also shows that children ages 5 to 17 are the most likely to watch Family Tree or Family Guy because of its comedic content.
According to the survey, more than 70 percent of children ages 4 to 17 watched Family Tree and Family Guys, compared to 60 percent of those ages 5 and older.
As of last December, more children ages 3 to 17 than adults ages 50 to 64 watched Family Guy on Cartoon Network.
