NBC Partners With Cable Net to Bolster Summer Schedule EW
NBC is teaming with a cable network to add to the broadcast net’s summer lineup, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog. "American Ninja Warrior" will move from its usual home on cable net G4 onto NBC's summer schedule, the piece reports.
G4 and NBC are partnering on the presentation, but the move comes as ABC's "Wipeout" is seeing its ratings soften, the story points out. "American Ninja Warrior," a serious obstacle competition show as compared to the more humorous "Wipeout," was tested by NBC on the broadcast network and performed well, the article adds.
