Despite the hot night, there was a chill vibe in the air at the NBC upfront party on the Beverly Hilton rooftop. Celebs like Heroes' Greg Grunberg and ER's John Stamos kept cool with electronic mini-fans the network handed out to guests. As they noshed on roast beef, pasta and loads of pastries, partygoers could unwind in cabanas, mingle with the masses, or, in the case of NBC's biggest stars, dish to TV Guide about the upcoming season of their hit show.

My Name Is Earl's Nadine Velasquez says, "The last I heard, I might explore being a lesbian and compete with Earl for girls. It's not confirmed yet because the network has to approve it, but I love it." Still, despite the reporters trying to get some scoop, it was a party. ER's Mekhi Phifer, who doesn't return to work until August, didn't know much about the upcoming season. After a few minutes, Phifer looked at the crowd and said, "C'mon, guys, I just want to drink and relax." And he did - after a few more questions, of course.
