American Ninja Warrior 4 Compilation Season Schedule

The first episode of the “American Ninja Warrior 4 Compilation” series to air on NBC on Saturday nights from 8-9 pm Eastern will be a recap of “some of the best scenes” from the Southwest region. I assume this means both the opening regional round as well as the regional finals. This is in line with my expectations that of the 8 one-hour episodes of this “season”, the first 6 will be one-hour treatments of each region, and then the last 2 one-hour episodes will cover the National Finals in Las Vegas.

The February 9th episode will cover the Northeast region.

The February 16th episode will cover the Southeast Region. I don’t have visibility for later episodes. If you learn the schedule per the regions beyond that, please let me know and I will re-post it!

Airing Schedule
Feb 2nd – Southwest Region
Feb 9th – Northeast Region
Feb 16th – Southeast Region
Feb 23rd – ?
March 2nd – ?
March 9th – ?
March 16th – National Finals in Las Vegas
March 23rd – National Finals in Las Vegas

I’ll also say more broadly that the fact NBC is doing this compilation season is a great signal about their commitment to the franchise. This will build a bigger audience for the show in advance of American Ninja Warrior 5 to air the summer of 2013, and most likely is secondarily being done to drum up more competitors to compete in American Ninja Warrior 5 that is likely to go down in late March and April this year.

    Cool. So you think Regional Qualifying Rounds start in late March/Early April. That means they’ll start accepting audition tapes February?

    Hey Brandon.  Yeah, that’s my best guess.  I think they’ll announce the opening of the submission period for ANW5 on Feb 2nd during the airing of the first episode of the ANW4 compilation season (or whatever they are calling it) that will air on Saturday nights on NBC during March and April.  Are you applying this year?
