NBC Quickly Renews “Little Big Shots” For Season 2

Little Big Shots [NBC]

After drawing big ratings for its first two episodes, “Little Big Shots” has earned a second season renewal from NBC.

Airing out of “The Voice,” last Tuesday’s preview ranked as broadcast television’s highest-rated alternative series premiere or preview episode in four-and-a-half-years. It then enjoyed the greatest live+3 lift ever for an alternative series premiere.

This Sunday’s time period premiere, which did not receive lead-in assistance from “The Voice,” posted comparable live+same-day numbers, ranking as NBC’s most-watched Sunday entertainment telecast since a 2005 edition of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

“‘Little Big Shots’ is that rare show that starts out as a good idea and then, somewhere along the way, turns into a bit of magic,” said NBC’s Mike Darnell. “The incredible combination of Steve Harvey, Ellen DeGeneres and amazing kids is irresistible — fun, funny, and insanely family-friendly. I am incredibly proud of this production, and it’s nice to see that the right alternative concept at the right time can still attract a huge audience.”
