Nik Wallenda

via press release:

It will be one of the most daring and captivating live events in history -- Nik Wallenda, known as “The King of the High Wire,” will traverse the majestic Grand Canyon, without using a harness at 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River, a height greater than the Empire State Building. The tightrope crossing will take place in a remote section of the canyon operated by the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation. Discovery Channel will capture the nail-biting, play-by-play live event at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on Sunday, June 23.

    He said he would do it last year after crossing Niagara Falls, and I am glad to see him go again. I am surprised that it is not on ABC again, as it had strong ratings (especially for a Friday). I guess that they have Whodunnit premiering, but Nik Wallenda could have done this Friday the 21st. Maybe ABC would not let him not use a harness (he was using one at Niagara Falls last year), but Discovery allowed him to.
