Little Big Shots and Genius Junior Premiere Dates Revealed

NBC has revealed yet another piece of their spring schedule. Per the Twitter accounts for the respective shows, the third season of Little Big Shots and the first season of game show Genius Junior will premiere on Sunday, March 18. Little Big Shots will premiere at 7:00, presumably airing for two hours, as its usual timeslot has been 8:00. Genius Junior, another kid-centric unscripted show, this one hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will premiere at 9:00.

NBC has yet to reveal what will air in the 10:00 timeslot on Sundays, and whether or not Little Big Shots will be the regular occupant of the 7:00 timeslot, or if something else, such as Dateline, or Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly. Last season Shades of Blue aired in the 10:00 timeslot, and it has been renewed for a 10-episode third season. The recent announcement that Shades of Blue star Jennifer Lopez will appear in a Will & Grace episode as her Shades of Blue character indicates a certain likelihood that Shades of Blue will air in-season, rather than waiting until the summer, and Sundays at 10:00 is the one timeslot currently open for the show this spring. It is also unknown what NBC will air on Sunday, March 11. It's possible that they are avoiding the return of American Idol, but it is also possible that they plan on making an aggressive move on the night.
