“American Ninja Warrior” has stayed strong enough to top a summer evening — even when it’s in reruns.
The reality competition’s host network, NBC, won Wednesday in both the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and among total viewers. Fox finished runner-up with both “MasterChef” and “Wayward Pines” originals.
