Wow, I wasn’t expecting this. The ninja world is still buzzing from the recent confirmation by NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt that they will air American Ninja Warrior 5 this summer, and now this unexpected bomb. Admittedly, this comes from one single source (thefutoncritic.com), which is a fairly reliable source, so I have yet to “double-confirm” this, but I’m just a blogger so I’m going to post it anyway! [NOTE: This has now been confirmed by multiple sources]
Supposedly, allegedly, NBC is going to invest further in the American Ninja Warrior franchise by airing 8 new 1-hour compilation episodes of last season’s American Ninja Warrior 4 – including some tantalizing “never-before-seen-footage” – on Saturday nights at 8:00/7:00c beginning February 2nd. These episodes will be distilled from the 27 hours of episodes that composed ANW4 (13 on G4, 14 on NBC). Set your DVRs ninja bitches!
