‘Little Big Shots’ Renewed for Season 2 at NBC

NBC has wasted no time in giving a second season pickup to “Little Big Shots,” the kid talent show that delivered eye-popping numbers in its second outing on Sunday.

The talent showcase hosted by Steve Harvey hails from Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Warner Horizon Television. “Little Big Shots” raked in 14.8 million viewers in its time-slot premiere on Sunday. That followed its strong sneak peek airing on March 8, which grabbed 12.8 million viewers.

Sunday’s airing saw the adults 18-49 demo rating shoot up to a 2.8 rating/9 share coming out of a rerun of the March 8 debut, which delivered 7.6 million viewers and 1.2/4 in adults 18-49. The obvious heat made it a no-brainer for NBC to order more episodes.

“Little Big Shots” features moppets demonstrating their skills as dancers, singers, musicians and other disciplines.

“Congrats to both Steve and Ellen for bringing these adorable kids to our attention and watching them flourish,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late-night programming. “We couldn’t be more excited about ordering a second season and having a national audience admire the remarkable feats of these exceptional children.”

“Little Big Shots” marks a big win for both DeGeneres’ banner and Mike Darnell, the former Fox alternative programming chief who joined Warner Bros. as unscripted TV czar in 2013.

“‘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,” Darnell said. “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.”

DeGeneres, Harvey, Jeff Kleeman, Gerald Washington, Robin Ashbrook, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner are exec producers of “Little Big Shots.”
