TV Ratings: 'Little Big Shots' Spinoff Tops Wednesday With Modest Debut
Little Big Shots' senior-centric spinoff may not have bowed as big as the parent series, but its Wednesday premiere was enough to nab a nightly win.
The first episode of Little Big Shots: Forever Young scored a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 on NBC. And while that may be a modest start in the key demo, its 7.4 million-strong audience made sure it brought in nearly twice the audience of any other original offering of the night.
NBC also had a new episode of The Carmichael Show — steady with a 0.8 rating in the key demo. Elsewhere, Fox offered new episodes of MasterChef (0.9 adults) and The F Word (0.7 adults).
A 10 o'clock showing of To Tell the Truth averaged a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 for ABC.
