Australia’s Big Brother was the number one show for zero to four-year-olds.
Australia’s first Big Brother last year was a hit–especially among kids who can’t even speak yet. The show was the most-watched program by kids ages zero to four, and was the fifth most popular show with kids five to 12. 50,000 kids under five watched the finale of the show last year, the Herald Sun reports.
