'Master Chef Junior,' 'Little Big Shots' Leading Television's Hottest Trend: Kid TV
Kid TV is becoming one of tinsel town’s hottest new trends.
The new variety show, Little Big Shots hosted by Steve Harvey, has been a surprise hit for NBC, with 13 million viewers tuning in during its premiere four weeks ago.
Kids are also heating things up in the kitchen in Master Chef Junior, though host Gordon Ramsey is a lot gentler than he is on his grown up reality shows.
Logan Guleff, 13, won season two of the show when he was just 11.
“I just think it's really cool to see kids do something really extraordinary, whether it's cooking or one of the other kid reality TV shows,” he told INSIDE EDITION. “For a kid it’s tough, but it’s a lot of fun.”
Food Network's now jumping on the trend with Chopped Junior.
There's also Project Runway Jr., based on the hit Project Runway.
Maya Hollingsworth, 14, took the top prize.
“It doesn't matter your age, you can really do anything you set your mind to,” she told IE.
No question about it, Kid TV is here to stay.
