Stereotypical Audience Member • The target market for this show is for young males, from adolescents to early adult hood (16-25) as the theme of the show appeals to them. • Misfits has an audience of a lower to a middle social class, generally. The reason being is because they can relate to the characters more. • There is no specific stereotype of viewers ethnicities or sexual orientation, as it could possibly appeal to all ranges of people as the characters are of a diverse mix.
