** The 1970 season opener, "The Night Virginia City Died," featured plenty of fire ... the burning of old buildings by an arsonist, that is. The fires were a way to explain the move of filming the series from Paramount to the new Warner Bros. studios.

* LongRunner: Take a look at the top of the page and count how many years it was on the air....
** For many years its run made it only the second longest running primetime American drama after ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}'' before being surpassed by ''Series/LawAndOrder'' (20 seasons, itself tied with ''Gunsmoke'') and ''Series/{{ER}}'' (15 seasons) though only the former had more episodes.
