The Kids are Definitely Alright

Nine’s streaming of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 may have reigned in the past few days, but it’s the kids that have been more consistent in securing the top spots. From Bluey to Peppa Pig to Peter Rabbit, there’s a ton of kids shows that have been performing well and well ahead of the pack. There’s also a bit of reality and lifestyle in the mix with Outback Truckers squeezing in the top 5.
