NBC's huge preview last week of "Little Big Shots" actually grew 16 percent in total viewers for the series' time period premiere on Sunday — and that was without a "Voice" lead-in. Yesterday's Episode 2 was actually the network's biggest Sunday entertainment show in 11 years, not counting post-Super Bowl broadcasts.

The Steve Harvey-hosted series scored a massive 2.8 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic last night, and hauled in 14.8 million viewers overall. Last Tuesday, the series debut aired at 10 p.m., following two hours of the hit singing competition. Then, it grabbed a 2.9/10 and 12.7 million total viewers.

CBS won the first half-hour of primetime last night with its NCAA Tournament selection show, despite the bracket leaking early online.
