An endearing and popular character in modern detective fiction is the character of Lieutenant Columbo. He was created by Richard Levinson & William Link as part of the NBC Mystery Movie. You can see a guide to those episodes here.

When ABC decided to revive the mystery movie concept, Columbo was a natural choice. The mystery movie concept lasted on ABC for two seasons. But even after that, ABC commissioned the occasional production of additional Columbo movies, which they would usually air during a sweeps ratings period.
