Nickelodeon USA to Premiere 'American Ninja Warrior' on Monday, August 12, 2019

Nickelodeon USA will start to premiere NBC’s three-time Emmy Award-nominated reality series American Ninja Warrior on Monday, August 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT)! The series will launch on Nick with it's eighth season.

Hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila, the action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle challenging obstacle courses in city qualifying and finals rounds throughout the U.S. Top competitors in each of the city finals rounds move onto the national finals, where they compete on a four-stage course that includes multiple obstacles on each stage. The winner, who must complete all four stages, including the final 75-foot rope climb, will take home a grand prize of $1 million. In addition, the ninja to go the farthest on the national finals course wins $100,000.

NBC’s summertime staple is always a strong ratings performer. In 2018, American Ninja Warrior delivered a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.9 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” Nielsens, scoring as the most-watched broadcast of the night with each of its final five telecasts of the summer. The show consistently generated top-10 rankings among primetime shows on the Big 4 networks in numerous key demographics, including a #3 ranking among kids 2-11 behind only the two editions of America’s Got Talent.

Based on the global hit Sasuke, from Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, the original series is now in its 36th season in Japan.
