NBC'S SMASH HIT "LITTLE BIG SHOTS" RENEWED FOR SECOND SEASON

Executive Produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, Midseason Series Comes Out of the Gate on Fire With Huge Ratings, Including Best Ever L+3 for Alternative Series Premiere

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - March 14, 2016 - Go "Big" or go home!

Based on the incredible success over its first two episodes, NBC has renewed alternative hit "Little Big Shots" for a second season. The series comes from executive producers Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, who also hosts.

"I've been amazed at how smart and talented these kids are," said Harvey. "They may be small in stature, but they're giants in what they're able to do."

"I am so excited there's going to be a second season of 'Little Big Shots,'" said DeGeneres. "It's such a great family show, and when it's over you won't have to explain what happens in the 'fantasy suite.'"

Said Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment: "Congrats to both Steve and Ellen for bringing these adorable kids to our attention and watching them flourish. We couldn't be more excited about ordering a second season and having a national audience admire the remarkable feats of these exceptional children."

Mike Darnell, President, Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television, said: "'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. 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."

Sunday's regular-timeslot premiere of "Little Big Shots" averaged a 2.8 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 14.8 million viewers overall in "live plus same day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research, making it NBC's most-watched Sunday regularly-scheduled entertainment program (excluding post-Super Bowl shows) since March 2005.

The Tuesday, March 8 preview of "Little Big Shots" averaged a 2.9 rating 10 share in adults 18-49 and 12.8 million viewers overall, making it the highest-rated alternative series premiere or preview on any network in 18-49 since Fox's "The X-Factor" in September 2011.

The March 8 preview also generated the largest L+3 total-viewer lift for an alternative series premiere ever, growing by more than 1.8 million persons, from 12.8 million viewers in L+SD ratings to 14.7 million in L+3.

"Little Big Shots" showcases young performers, from musicians, singers and dancers to every form of wunderkind from around the globe. These gifted kids awe the nation with their talents, slay us with their cuteness and wow us with their accomplishments. They show us once and for all that talent is born, not made.

"Little Big Shots" is executive produced by DeGeneres, Harvey, Jeff Kleeman, Gerald Washington, Robin Ashbrook, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner. Alison Holloway is the co-executive producer. The series is produced by Warner Horizon Television, East 112th Street Productions and A Very Good Production.
