Sasuke is a Japanese sports entertainment television special that airs on the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) between Japanese television drama seasons, and consists of a competition in which 100 competitors attempt to complete four obstacle course stages. Each 3-hour special covers an entire competition, and there have been 28 specials, approximately one new special per season, since September 26, 1997. In the United States, Sasuke is televised under the name Ninja Warrior on the G4 channel, airing in 30-minute episodes. In the United Kingdom, it is also known as Ninja Warrior; also airing in 30-minute episodes on the Challenge channel. NBC has plans to partner with G4 and air Ninja Warrior on their network, making it the first time a large broadcasting company to air a Japanese show from the U.S.
While some obstacles officially have Japanese names (for instance, the Warped Wall is officially called the Soritatsu Kabe), all obstacle names have been translated to English for the purpose of this article.
