Seven has held off launching Little Big Shots this Sunday against the might of Nine’s Australian Ninja Warriors.
The backflip comes despite Seven already running on-air promos for Little Big Shots for 7pm Sunday night.
But the Ninja Warriors has pulled massive numbers across two nights, as high as 1.68m viewers, swamping the family viewing audience.
The decision not to pit their new show against Nine’s athletes, is a rare move from Seven which has been running its own race this year and is out in front in the ratings race.
A new broadcast date is yet to be announced.
