G4 Airs a Full Night of Ninja Warrior 25 Programming Saturday, August 14 (6:00-10:00pm, ET)

Los Angeles, CA, August 11, 2010 � If you think you have seen the groundbreaking "Ninja Warrior," then you better think again, because "Ninja Warrior 25" is bigger, tougher and even more unforgiving than anything Mt. Midoriyama has ever seen before. An updated course that has never before been undertaken will be the ultimate challenge for new and returning hopefuls. To celebrate this bigger and badder "Ninja Warrior," G4 is pulling out all the stops and loading up the night with four full hours of original kick-butt "Ninja Warrior" programming. Two separate "Ninja Warrior" specials and five half-hour episodes of the most challenging "Ninja Warrior" competition yet will make up the network's ultimate homage to the physical challenge competition that is the granddaddy of them all. G4's "Ninja Warrior 25" programming event takes place Saturday, August 14 from 6:00-10:00pm ET/PT.

This huge television event begins at 6:00 pm with "25 Reasons to Worship Ninja Warrior," the one-hour special hosted by Angie Greenup which counts down all the elements that make this the world's most unique and, arguably the toughest, physical challenge. Long-time fans and newcomers to the "Ninja Warrior" family alike will be blown away by this tribute showcasing exactly why we love Mt. Midoriyama and is the perfect way to gear up for the 25th running of the challenge in Japan.

Next, "Attack of the Show's" own Alison Haislip will host the "Ninja Warrior All-Star Special," a half-hour program focusing on the friendship and training partnership between Makoto Nagano, Grand Champion of "Ninja Warrior 17," and Levi Meeunwenberg, an American athlete who first met Nagano when they competed against each other in Japan at "Ninja Warrior 20." Both men will compete in "Ninja Warrior 25," and viewers will see first-hand the grueling training undertaken by these athletes and friends, as both set their sights on victory at Mt. Midoriyama.

At 7:30 pm, it's the thrilling Main Event, when G4 showcases five back-to-back episodes of "Ninja Warrior 25," taking viewers from the beginning to the exciting and unexpected conclusion all in one night. To date, only three brave challengers have overcome all obstacles to reach the summit of Mt. Midoriyama. Now that the mountain has been beaten, a new era dawns with the running of "Ninja Warrior 25." Significant changes have been made to the course, the stakes have been raised and the path to victory is more treacherous than before, putting every challenger on notice that "the mountain wants its revenge."
