From the Matlock episode "The Accident"

Matlock is a court-room drama starring Andy Griffith as a Southern defense attorney, which ran from 1986 until 1995. The series usually had Matlock proving his client's innocence, Perry Mason-style, by unmasking the real killer in court. The show has remained available through reruns, often on channels geared towards older viewers.
