‘Team Ninja Warrior’ Moves to USA Network

Series Originally Aired on Esquire Network

“Team Ninja Warrior,” hosted by “The New Celebrity Apprentice” winner Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila, will premiere its 11-part second season on USA beginning Tuesday, April 18 at 10 ET, immediately following “WWE Smackdown.”

“Team Ninja Warrior,” part of the franchise “American Ninja Warrior,” pits three-person athletic teams against each other on physically demanding, side-by-side obstacle courses that test both endurance and speed. Originally debuting on Esquire Network in 2016, “Team Ninja Warrior” ranked as the network’s most watched original series in its history. Esquire recently announced that the network, a partnership between NBCUniversal and Hearst Magazines, will transform into a digital-only brand.
