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.
On May 9, 2015, NBC green lighted the series, which has received an order for eight one-hour episodes, featuring "the world's most talented and extraordinary kids". In a press release from NBC, "Harvey will showcase young musicians, singers, dancers and every form of wunderkind in the country, and go toe to toe with them in conversations and interviews, with hilarious results."
The kiddie competition drew 14.8 million viewers to become NBC’s most-watched Sunday night regularly scheduled entertainment telecast in more than a decade, since Law & Order: Criminal Intent on March 13, 2005 (15.715 million).
Not only for NBC was the rating historical, but for Reality TV in general. Clearly a no brainer,NBC has decided to renew its what possibly be, reality tv's next big thing.
