Premiered: September 18, 1965, on NBC
Premise: Playful, popular sitcom about astronaut Tony Nelson and the sexy genie he releases from a bottle. In the blink of an eye, she claims him as her `master.' At first they lived together platonically (while Jeannie of course complicated his life), but the pair got married toward the end of the series' run. The network insisted that Barbara Eden's navel never be shown, despite an already fairly revealing harem costume. The show was created and executive produced by Sidney Sheldon.
