BURBANK July 16, 2007 NBC launches its season premieres the week of
September 24. The network will adjust its schedule by moving the new
comedic spy thriller "Chuck" to Mondays (8-9 p.m. ET) followed by
switching the popular Monday version of "Deal or No Deal" to Fridays
(8-9 p.m. ET), and shifting "Friday Night Lights" to an earlier new
time of 9-10 p.m. (ET) and " Las Vegas" to 10-11 p.m. (ET).

In addition, NBC will expand "The Biggest Loser" to 90 minutes on
Tuesdays (8-9:30 p.m. ET) and will have a special two-hour premiere on
Tuesday, Sept. 11. Summer's newest hit, "The Singing Bee" (which
premiered earlier this month), will have its Fall premiere on Tuesday,
September 25 (9:30-10 p.m. ET).

NBC's premiere week will also feature one-hour episodes each of "My
Name Is Earl" (8-9 p.m. ET) and "The Office" (9-10 p.m. ET) on
Thursday, September 27 and a two-hour episode premiere of "Las Vegas"
on Friday, September 28 (9-11 p.m. ET).

The announcements were made by Ben Silverman, Co-Chairman, NBC
Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, and Marc Graboff,
Co-Chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios.

"We can't wait for the new season to begin and we believe that these
programming changes will allow for a powerhouse Monday night with
'Chuck,' 'Heroes' and 'Journeyman,'" said Silverman. "On Tuesdays, the
90-minute 'The Biggest Loser' has always performed well and will fit
perfectly with our new summer hit 'The Singing Bee.' On Fridays, we
can hammock 'Friday Night Lights' between two proven hits 'Deal or No
Deal' and 'Las Vegas,' with new cast member Tom Selleck."

Said Graboff: "We like that we can start our season off strong with
hour-long episodes of such comedy favorites as 'Earl' and 'The
Office.' Coupled with the dynamo of 'Sunday Night Football,' we will
have a very potent fall lineup and these schedule adjustments will
only make us stronger."

All of NBC's primetime entertainment series will bow during the week
of September 24 with the exception of "The Biggest Loser" (Tuesday,
September 11), "30 Rock" (Thursday, October 4), "Friday Night Lights"
(Friday, October 5) and "Scrubs" (Thursday, October 25).

In addition, "Deal or No Deal" will premiere on Monday, September 17
(8-9 p.m. ET) -- one final time in its previously announced day and
time before moving to Fridays (8-9 p.m. ET) on September 28.

Likewise, "Friday Night Lights" was previously scheduled for Fridays
(10-11 p.m. ET) and "Las Vegas" (9-10 p.m. ET) on the same night
before swapping time periods.

On September 24, NBC tees up its new season on Mondays (8-9 p.m. ET)
with "Chuck," a new hour-long series from executive producer Josh
Schwartz ("The O.C.") and executive producer-director McG ("Charlie's
Angels," "We Are Marshall"), who deliver a comedic spy thriller about
Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, "Less Than Perfect") -- a computer geek
who is catapulted into a new career as the government's most vital
secret agent. Then comes the much-anticipated second-season debut of
"Heroes" (9-10 p.m. ET) as the epic ensemble drama centers on several
ordinary people who possess extraordinary abilities.

Monday, September 24 will also serve as the premiere of the new drama
"Journeyman" (10-11 p.m. ET). From Emmy Award-winning writer-producer
Kevin Falls ("The West Wing") and Emmy Award-winning director-producer
Alex Graves ("The West Wing"), "Journeyman" is a romantic
mystery-drama about Dan Vasser (Kevin McKidd, "Rome"), a San Francisco
newspaper reporter and family man who inexplicably begins to travel
through time and change people's lives.

Tuesdays mark the beginning of a new season of "The Biggest Loser"
(8-10 p.m. ET) starting September 11 as the popular competitive
weight-loss series boasts a few new twists. "The Singing Bee,"
introduced earlier this month, is hosted by Joey Fatone (*NSYNC) as it
challenges contestants to not only sing a song but compels them to
sing the words correctly. The variety-competition series will join the
fall lineup on September 25.

The perennial favorite "Deal or No Deal" (8-9 p.m.) jump-starts
Wednesdays beginning September 25 with host Howie Mandel, whose
provocative series title question: "Deal or no deal?" has become a
national catchphrase. The new "Bionic Woman" (9-10 p.m. ET) stars
Michelle Ryan ("EastEnders") as a young woman whose life is radically
altered and empowered after a car crash as it debuts on September 25.
Also on the same night, the new drama "Life" (10-11 p.m. ET) features
a complex police detective (Damian Lewis, "Band of Brothers") who's
given a second chance on the force after serving years in prison for a
crime he didn't commit.

"My Name Is Earl" (8-9 p.m. ET) and the Emmy Award-winning "The
Office" (9-10 p.m. ET) will break out of the gate in a big way on
Thursday, September 27 as each premieres with an hour-long episode.
The 14th season debut of "ER" follows (10-11 p.m. ET).

The two-hour premiere of "Las Vegas" (9-11 p.m. ET) will follow the
new Friday-night "Deal or No Deal" (8-9 p.m. ET) on September 28.

As it did during last fall, "Football Night in America" (7-8 p.m. ET)
and "Sunday Night Football" (8-11 p.m. ET) will dominate on autumn
Sundays.
