Australian Ninja Warrior hit Aussie screens on July 9, and has drawn such massive viewer numbers that other networks are reportedly scrambling to move their biggest shows to avoid competing in the same time slot as it, according to a recent report on Stuff.
The article reports that Three has won the rights to screen the Australian Ninja Warrior show in New Zealand.
The show will screen on Three in New Zealand later this year, but Chief content officer Andrew Szusterman wouldn’t be drawn on a date. “Australian Ninja Warrior’s ratings for its first week on air in Australia have superseded any other non-sport show for some time. We are thrilled we have secured it to bring to New Zealanders on Three later this year,” he said.
