+

Hours ahead of the season finale, the reality competition series has been renewed at NBC for sixth season at the network and ninth season overall, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The renewal is no surprise given American Ninja Warrior's impressive ratings. The show is averaging a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49 and also ranks among the top 10 primetime series on broadcast in the demo. This season, the fifth on NBC and eighth overall, also currently as the show's most-watched ever in total viewers. (Submissions for the show also reached a series-high last spring of 70,000, according to NBC.) American Ninja Warrior is also coming off its first Emmy nomination for best reality competition program, for which the winner will be announced at Sunday's ceremony.
