Jerrold Who? I thought Bruce Broughton composed the theme...
Jerrold Immel. He composed the theme for the series and scored the show for most of its run, alternating at times with Bruce Broughton (who also won and Emmy for his work on Dallas) and John Parker.

Immel however, wrote the iconic theme we all know and love.
Gotcha.
Also, a fun fact from a soundtrack editor I know:

The job of scoring Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was originally offered to Jerrold Immel. He wound up turning it down because he was also offered the job of scoring Megaforce. He chose Megaforce because it had been allocated a bigger budget for scoring.

Once again, the almighty dollar wins. J.R. would be proud.
