Airing tonight on NBC, AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR is an extreme-sports competition show based on the Tokyo Broadcast System’s worldwide hit SASUKE. Originally broadcast on G4, the series has been picked up for re-broadcast on NBC and pits everyday folk against each other in an attempt to conquer the arduous four-stage obstacle course fashioned after the original Mount Midoriyama in Japan. The finalists in the competition will have a shot at a $50,000 cash prize and the chance to walk away with the coveted AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR title.
We recently sat down with show hosts Olympic gold medalist JOHNNY MOSELEY and comedian MATT ISEMAN, who talked about the premise of the contest and their own attempts to run the course.
