Tuesdays are becoming even more jam-packed with action now that Esquire Network's big hit Team Ninja Warrior is moving to USA Network. Starting this April, the epic competition series that pits teams against each other in tests of speed and endurance will air Tuesday nights, immediately after WWE Smackdown.
In 11 all-new episodes, season two of Team Ninja Warrior will feature 28 teams of fan-favorite competitors from the hit show American Ninja Warrior. Each three-person team will be made up of two men and one woman who will settle their rivalries in intense, side-by-side obstacle courses for the ultimate ninja bragging rights!
Comedian Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila will host season two, and Alex Curry from FOX Sports will be a sideline reporter, rounding out the team of celebrity commentators.
“Team Ninja Warrior is a perfect pairing to WWE Smackdown,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “With this powerful franchise, we’re giving our passionate audience three full hours of jam-packed, high-stakes action every Tuesday night."
Season two of Team Ninja Warrior premieres on USA Network, Tuesday, Apr. 18 at 10/9c!
