This Day in TV History: A memorable debut and a GENIUS guests on Cannon!

On this night 45 years ago, NBC premiered The Bionic Woman, its high-profile spinoff of The Six Million Dollar Man. "Welcome Home Jaime" was the first part of the pilot; the second installment aired the following week.  After two seasons on ABC, the series moved to NBC for one last go-round.

Elsewhere on the dial, CBS' broadcast of an all-new Cannon episode, "The House of Cards," featured guest star and BOTNS favorite (and namesake of the Genius Award) Robert Pine! Dabney Coleman and Pernell Roberts also star as "a small-town newspaperman takes on a dual identity and fakes his own murder."  Roberts is the newspaperman, Coleman is--well, I don't know, but I assume he is a jerk, and Pine is a sheriff.
