NBC’s kids talent show Little Big Shots got off to a strong ratings start in its Tuesday preview, and the network said today that viewership jumped by double digits in Live+3. The Steve Harvey-hosted program scored 14.65M viewers in the DVR metric, a 14% jump from 12.8M in Live+Same Day. The 1.84M delayed viewers is the biggest L+3 rise for an alternative-series premiere on any network; the previous record holder was Fox’s Cosmos in March 2014 (1.77M L+3 increase).
Executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Harvey, Little Big Shots has its time slot premiere tonight at 8 PM. It features “young talent, from musicians, singers and dancers to a 4-year-old basketball phenom, a 5-year-old reincarnation of Bruce Lee and every form of wunderkind from around the globe.”
