NBC moved quickly to pick up its newest hit show for another season. The network will bring back “Little Big Shots” for season two, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The program bowed earlier this month and has aired just two episodes so far. As we reported Monday, “Little Big Shots” gave a boost to NBC’s Sunday ratings over the weekend.
Created by Ellen DeGeneres and host Steve Harvey, “Little Big Shots” is a talent show featuring kids. It initially received an order for eight one-hour episodes.
In its preview as a lead-out from “The Voice,” the show “opened to an impressive 2.9 rating among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic and 12.8 million total viewers,” THR reports. “That was good enough to make it the highest-rated alternative series premiere (or preview) on any network in the demo since Fox’s ‘The X-Factor’ launched in September 2011. With three days of DVR returns, ‘Little Big Shots’ grew to feature the largest L3 total viewer lift for an alternative series, growing to 14.7 million total viewers.”
