(from NBC's press release, March 2018) The two-time Emmy Award-nominated "American Ninja Warrior" returns for its seventh full season on NBC. Hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila are back, along with co-host Kristine Leahy. The action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle a series of challenging obstacle courses in both city qualifying and city finals rounds across the country. Those that successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas where they face a stunning four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama in Japan. The winner will take home a grand prize of $1 million. This season the show will make stops in Dallas, Miami, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Minneapolis before heading to Las Vegas. In its sixth season on NBC last summer, "American Ninja Warrior" remained a top draw, delivering a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" Nielsens to generate top-10 rankings among Big 4 primetime summer shows in adults 18-49, kids 2-11 and teens 12-17.
