I saw this in Wednesday's USA Today.  A group called Magna Global USA used Nielsen data for this past season to analyze the audience age for all of the shows for the six broadcast networks in the US. 

Here are the FOX programs with the youngest median age audience:

The Simpsons - 27.8 years
Malcolm in the Middle - 28.8
Grounded for Life - 29.4
King of the Hill - 29.5
Futurama - 29.8

well, with the median being lower than the average and stable against high "noise", this is kinda amazing high... and the highest of the 5

How about Family Guy?

Only the 5 shows with the lowest median age, and the 5 with the highest median age were mentioned.  Also, they used the ratings for Oct. 2000 to May 2001, and I don't think Family Guy was on at that time. 

It's also interesting to note that 3 of the 5 are animated programs, and 4 of 5 are on Sunday night, which is Fox's best night (ratings wise).
