Plot Synopsis

In this comedy/variety series, host Melissa McCarthy (Season 4) and Steve Harvey (Seasons 1-3) showcase young musicians, singers, dancers and every form of wunderkind in the country, and goes toe to toe with them in conversations and interviews. LITTLE BIG SHOTS, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and McCarthy (Season 4) and Harvey (Seasons 1-3), celebrates phenomenal, fun and talented kids, highlighting their uniqueness, instead of making them compete against each other.

On Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered a sneak preview of LITTLE BIG SHOTS, five days before the show's official series premiere on Sunday, March 13 at 8pm. In the sneak-peek episode, "Little Bruce Lee," a four-year-old basketball phenom named Titus (Derby, KS) shows his amazing gift for trick shots, while a 6-year-old spelling champ (San Angelo, TX) faces Steve Harvey in a hilarious spelling competition. The sneak peek also includes a five-year-old reincarnation of Bruce Lee from Japan, two incredible singers from Toronto and Hong Kong, and a sassy dancer (Raleigh, NC) who became an internet sensation after dancing to Aretha Franklin's "Respect." Then, the season opener, "Little Boy Blue," showcases a four-year-old piano prodigy (Torrance, CA), gifted 7 and 11-year old salsa dancers (North Bergen and Jersey City, NJ), a funny viral storyteller (Greenville, SC) and a talented six-year-old maestro (Des Moines, Iowa) who conducts choirs like a pro.

Season 2 of LITTLE BIG SHOTS premiered on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC. The season opener, "We're Back," features an adorable 5-year-old who is a huge fan of Abe Lincoln and can recite the Gettysburg Address, a charismatic 4-year-old worship leader, a 12-year-old singing sensation from the Philippines and a 6-year-old science wiz who enlists Harvey's help with an explosive experiment. Also wowing viewers will be a 6-year-old basketball phenom and You Tube sensation who gets a very special surprise on the show, and a 4-year-old anatomy expert who impresses Harvey with her knowledge of every bone in the human body.

NBC premiered the third season of LITTLE BIG SHOTS on Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 7-9pm ET/PT, debuting back-to-back new episodes.

After taking a break for more than a year, LITTLE BIG SHOTS returned for its fourth season with a new host: Melissa McCarthy. In a completely reimagined new season, Melissa meets with some of the most inspiring and hilarious kids from all corners of the globe. They take viewers into their world, share their remarkable stories and reveal the incredible talents that set them apart. It's a celebration of how resilient, funny and inspiring kids can be when we allow them to be unabashedly themselves. NBC premiered Season 4 on a special night and time -- Monday, February 24, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT -- before the new season moved to its regular timeslot -- Sundays at 8pm -- beginning March 1.
On Sunday, May 24, 2020 from 7-9pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the Season 4 finale of LITTLE BIG SHOTS, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Lean on Me" (7pm): Melissa McCarthy introduces Asher, a future Paralympian; Vivian, an advocate for women toy soldiers; Selah, one of the youngest climbers of El Capitan; Keedron, a gospel singer; and the Albert Kids, who have a nose for detective work.
