BURBANK - September 19, 2005 - NBC accents its 2005-06 Fall series with a colorful palette of new stars - including arcs featuring guest stars Lara Flynn Boyle and Rachael Leigh Cook ("Las Vegas"), Janeane Garofalo on "The West Wing," Danny Glover, John Leguizamo and Kristen Johnston on "ER," Leslie Bibb on "Crossing Jordan" and John Larroquette on "Joey" -- and the updates include a new team format on "The Biggest Loser" and a hotel casino makeover on "Las Vegas."

Other series will be boosted by such new cast stars as Christopher Noth and Annabella Sciorra on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and Angie Harmon and Reynaldo Rosales on the new drama "Inconceivable," and Miguel A. Nunez Jr. on "Joey."

A current summary of the changes follows:

- Also on "Las Vegas," Cook ("She's All That") will recur as a guest star over an arc of four episodes that will feature her as a beautiful local real-estate agent who becomes a potential love interest for Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel). The drama premieres September 19.

- For the first time since its 1999 premiere, "The West Wing" is on a new night and time -- Sundays, 8-9 p.m. (ET) when it premieres on September 25.

- Noth ("Sex and the City") reprise his popular "Law & Order" character of Detective Mike Logan on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (Sundays, 9-10 p.m. ET). He will alternate episodes with Vincent D'Onofrio (Detective Goren) and Kathryn Erbe (Detective Eames) as the trouble-prone Logan, who teams with Detective Carolyn Barek (Sciorra, "The Sopranos"), a brilliant criminal profiler. The drama returns September 25.

- On the new drama "Inconceivable" (Fridays, 10-11 p.m. ET), Harmon (NBC's "Law & Order") joins the cast as Dr. Nora Campbell, a brilliant reproductive specialist who becomes a loose cannon at the clinic.

The first of Larroquette's episodes will air September 29.

- On "The Biggest Loser" (Tuesdays, 8-9 p.m. ET), 14 new strong-willed contestants compete to see which team can lose the most weight.
