The CW has provided The Continuum the first two images of Dean Cain from his upcoming guest stint on Smallville.

Cain, who starred in ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, is playing a character named Dr. Curtis Knox in the Smallville episode "Cure."

Here's how The CW describes the episode, which is scheduled for Oct. 18:

"Chloe (Allison Mack) learns that a doctor, Dr. Curtis Knox (Dean Cain), has been treating meteor-infected people and removing their abilities. Desperate to get rid of her powers, Chloe makes an appointment to see him, unaware that Dr. Knox has a nefarious plan to kill his patients and harvest their organs. Meanwhile, Kara (Laura Vandervoort) cons Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore) into helping her locate her crystal and defies Clark's (Tom Welling) order to stay on the farm after she discovers its whereabouts. Lana (Kristin Kreuk) sets up secret surveillance of Lex (Michael Rosenbaum)."

Rick Rosenthal directed the episode, which was written by Al Septien and Turi Meyer.

Fox has released a promotional image of Placido Domingo from "Homer of Seville," Sunday's new episode of The Simpsons.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Homer injures himself in a fall, and while in the hospital he develops the ability to sing in a beautiful, operatic voice whenever he is lying on his back. Mr. Burns overhears Homer during one of his singing sessions at the hospital and immediately hires him to sing the lead in his production of La Bohème. Although Homer has to lie down during the performance, he wows the crowd at the Springfield Opera House.

"Homer becomes an enormous celebrity, especially with the ladies -- much to Marge's chagrin. While running from a mob of crazed fans, Homer is saved by a mysterious woman named Julia (Maya Rudolph), who turns out to be a little too concerned for Homer's well-being."

According to NBC, new series Bionic Woman won its time period in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49 on Wednesday night.

The debut episode of Bionic Woman helped propelled NBC to a 37 percent gain in the demo and 49 growth in total viewers versus the opening Wednesday night of last season, based on viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

At 9 p.m. (ET), Bionic Woman had a 5.5 rating, a 14 share and 13.6 million views overall. It was the No. 1 telecast of the night in adults 18-49, winning its time period versus the series premiere of ABC's Private Practice, the season premiere of CBS' Criminal Minds and week two of Fox's Kitchen Nightmares. Bionic Woman also won its slot in adults 25-54 and all key adult male demos.

Bionic Woman was NBC's highest-rated program in its time period in nearly three years -- excluding Olympics -- since a special episode of The Apprentice on September 29, 2004.

Bionic Woman built on its lead-in from the previous hour by 112 percent.
