It’s a Beautiful Day in Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood

In September, preschoolers across America welcomed Daniel Tiger to the PBS Kids’ neighborhood. According to the Nielsen ratings service, the top six TV shows watched by kids aged 2-5 were all part of PBS’ lineup. More after the jump!

For the ninth consecutive month, Curious George was the show most watched by preschoolers, followed by Thomas & Friends, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, Super Why!, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Dinosaur Train. (The top four shows among “moms aged 18-49 with children under the age of 3”—which is an actual demographic group—were also part of PBS Kids.)

It’s great to see Daniel Tiger being so immediately embraced by both kids and parents. (We love him here too!) The values of Fred Rogers—one of the pioneers of educational public media—are alive and well.

PBSKids.org was one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites of 2012, and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood was the show most often watched by those visiting. If you haven’t taken the time to get acquainted with Daniel Tiger and his friends, you can watch him seven days a week on WILL-TV, and anytime you like on PBSKids.org.
