About the show
Created and co-produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, Little Big Shots is a new US television talent show airing on NBC since March 8, 2016. Harvey also acts as the show host. Little Big Shots is produced by East 112th Street Productions, A Very Good Production and Warner Horizon Television, with Jeff Kleeman and Gerald Washington also executive producing alongside Degeneres and Harvey. The first season is slated to contain eight one-hour episodes.
This is not a regular talent show, although both the talent and show parts are certainly present. In addition to performing on stage and demonstrating their exceptional abilities the children engage in hilarious conversations with Steve Harvey, who is a comedian himself, and brings a fresh perspective to the idea of a talent variety show. The tiny break dancers, piano virtuosos, poets, ventriloquists and martial arts masters are natural born experts at wooing the audience.
Exceptional ratings and an imminent renewal
Little Big Shots was renewed by NBC for a second season less than a week into the first cycle due to its unmistakable success. The series premiered to an audience of 14.8 million viewers and a 2.8 demo rating, which was more than double the viewership of any other broadcast program, and rose further to extraordinary 15 million for the second part. Viewership subsequently declined to 10.3 million viewers on Easter night, which is always a serious distraction for the television audiences, but it dominated the ratings charts nonetheless even with the 27% drop in viewership. The numbers are exceptional, so it is no wonder the show was almost immediately renewed. Stay tuned for a second season release date.
