CLEVELAND -- Its intimidating obstacle course has taken over Public Square.

American Ninja Warrior has descended on Cleveland.

NBC's hit TV show is in town filming two nights of qualifying rounds.

The first taping began Monday night and continued until shortly before sunrise Tuesday.

The next season of American Ninja Warrior debuts on Monday, June 12. It’s expected the Cleveland-filmed episodes will air at some point in July.

Although tickets to be in the audience are hard to come by, WKYC has you covered.
