“Little Big Shots” made a sizable impact for NBC during the week of March 7-13. The Steve Harvey-hosted variety show landed two spots among the Top 5 in adults 18-49, for both its Tuesday preview (2.9 rating) and its regular Sunday debut (2.8). The Sunday show was also the most-watched program of the week.

“The Big Bang Theory” (3.5) had the week’s top 18-49 rating, albeit at a season low for the show. Reruns on several networks meant some shows normally in the rankings didn’t make it this time out.
