NBC TO TELEVISE TWO-HOUR FINALE EPISODE OF G4's HIT SERIES "AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR" FROM JAPAN MONDAY, AUGUST 22 AT 9 PM ET

NEW YORK, NY - June 30, 2011 - NBC will televise the season finale of "American Ninja Warrior," G4's biggest and most successful original program to date, Monday, August 22, with a two-hour primetime special, beginning at 9 pm ET. The special will feature the American competitors' final stage of their journey as they head to Japan to take on the world's toughest obstacle course.

The third season of the show returns to G4 Sunday, July 31 to give fans the ultimate "Ninja Warrior" competition featuring harder U.S. trials and more accomplished competitors which, together, combine for intense obstacles, heart-racing tests and stunning upsets. G4 is offering the chance to win a $500,000 K·Swiss endorsement contract for the U.S. competitor who can finish all four stages of the finals in Japan, along with becoming the face of a nationwide advertising campaign for K·Swiss and G4.

From its premiere in December 2009, "American Ninja Warrior" has been a ratings powerhouse and staple of G4's original programming, with a record-breaking season two delivering over 8 million unique viewers in December 2010. "G4 viewers have made 'American Ninja Warrior' a phenomenon," said Neal Tiles, President, G4. "The second season's finale was the highest-rated original program in G4's history and has left fans wanting even more fast-paced, ninja action. This year's competition has been designed with one goal in mind - - to find an American who can finally conquer the course in Japan," Tiles added.

Matt Iseman (Host of Versus' "Sports Soup") and MMA Fighter and Belator Fighting Championship commentator Jimmy Smith will return as co-hosts along with G4's own Alison Haislip ("Attack of the Show," NBC's "The Voice") providing reports from the grueling tryouts and main event in Japan.

Since it began in 1997, Ninja Warrior (or Sasuke, as it's known in Japan), has only seen three competitors out of 2,600 ever successfully complete all four stages - none of whom were American. Last year, the second season of "American Ninja Warrior" concluded with four of the ten Americans making it as far as the third stage, only to fall victim to the world's most unforgiving obstacle course. This season, ten Americans will again get the chance to use the skills they have trained for and acquired in the hopes to become the first American to be crowned a true Ninja Warrior during the NBC telecast from Mt. Midoriyama, Japan.

"America Ninja Warrior" is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions ("Hell's Kitchen," "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" and "Pros vs. Joes").
