Australian Ninja Warrior slays the opposition in TV ratings



CHANNEL 9 insiders say it is only a matter of time before the network announces a second season of Australian Ninja Warrior.
The whispers come after monster ratings for the first two nights of Nine’s new sports game show.
The show has body-slammed the opposition in its second night on air averaging a whopping 1.604 million viewers across the five capital cities.
Another 670,000 regional viewers tuned in last night.
The result is comparable to Sunday night’s 1.68 million debut which was the biggest non-sport show figure of the year so far.
But any second season can’t happen quickly. The massive 136 metre long, 54 metre wide and 30 metre tall rig used for the first season, shot on Sydney’s Cockatoo Island, has been dismantled.
It took a crew including 10 riggers, 10 scaffolders, and 4 technicians around two weeks to build the rig for season one.
The set also included 18 grandstands, 3 host towers, 10 swimming pools, 10 camera platforms, and 60 tonnes of concrete to keep the rig in place in high winds.
“I’m sure we will go again but it (Australian Ninja Warrior) is a massive beast to put together,” a Nine insider says.
“The timeframe will likely be the same as (season one) – shooting around December/January and telecast about the same time (July) next year.”

Contestants won’t be an issue. Nine had 2000 registrations the day auditions were announced with another 3000 signing up before filming commenced. The success of this season will likely generate a lot more hopefuls.
Australian Ninja Warrior crushed Seven’s The Last 100 Days of Diana which averaged 768,000 and MasterChef Australia which averaged 753,000.
The stunning one-two ratings result is sure to put the wind up Nine’s rivals withAustralian Ninja Warrior set to screen for the next three weeks.
Tonight’s third episode will screen against Seven’s new Darren McMullen gameBehave Yourself.
