UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 14, 2006 - The NBC Universal Television Studio scored seven Golden Globe nominations today, including NBC's new hit drama "Heroes" (Mondays, 9-10 p.m. ET) -- which was nominated as Best Television Series-Drama -- while the Emmy Award-winning "The Office" (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET) also was nominated as Best Television Series-Comedy or Musical.

In addition, Hugh Laurie, the title star of the studio's critically acclaimed Fox drama "House" (Tuesdays, 9-10 p.m. ET), was nominated again for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Drama. The actor won the award for his performance in the same role and category last year.

Likewise, other studio nominees include Steve Carell of NBC's "The Office" (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET), who earned his second Globe nomination in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Comedy or Musical.
