NBC Entertainment develops and schedules a wide spectrum of programming for the groundbreaking network's primetime, late-night, and daytime schedules. NBC's quality programs and innovative lineup have earned it critical acclaim, ratings success, particularly among young, upscale viewers, and numerous awards, including many more Emmy Awards than any network in television history.

NBC's more colorful roster of popular scripted series includes the three-time Emmy-winning "30 Rock" (starring Golden Globe and multiple Emmy winners Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin) and the Emmy-winning "The Office" (starring Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Steve Carell). In addition, NBC offers such hit dramas as "Heroes" -- NBC's #1 series of the 2007-08 season in 18-49 -- and the powerful "Law & Order" franchise, anchored by the original "mother ship" series that matched "Gunsmoke" as the longest-running drama series in the history of television.

In the alternative series realm, NBC boasts "The Celebrity Apprentice," hosted by Donald Trump and produced by Mark Burnett, as well as the popular competitive weight-loss series "The Biggest Loser" -- which in Spring 2009 delivered its biggest average audience since Fall 2004. Likewise, NBC shines in all seasons with the unpredictable "America's Got Talent" -- the #1 original summer series in total viewers of 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. NBC also airs fresh and original miniseries and event programming throughout the year.
