Matlock was a long-running American television legal drama. The show ran from September 23, 1986 to May 8, 1992 on NBC, where it replaced the long-running series The A-Team to Friday nights, then on November 5, 1992 until May 7, 1995 on ABC.

The format of the show was similar to that of Perry Mason, with Matlock identifying the murderer and then confronting him or her in a dramatic courtroom scene near the end. One difference, however, was that whereas Mason usually exculpated his clients at a pretrial hearing, Matlock usually secured an acquittal at trial, from the jury.

Coincidentally, some Perry Mason alumni appeared on the drama, such as R. G. Armstrong and Stacy Keach, Sr.

The show centered on widower Benjamin L. "Ben" Matlock (Andy Griffith). Matlock is a renowned, folksy, popular yet cantankerous defense attorney, (based on attorney Bobby Lee Cook, from Summerville Georgia,) who is worth every penny of his $100,000 fee. As part of "The Thief (Part1)" Matlock bartered his services for several rare coins in the defense of a coin dealer. His remark was "Look at it this way Michael. You just got $100,000.00 in legal services for just $13.00."  He has also solved and subsequently won at trial almost every case he has taken, especially murder cases where everyone else was sure his client was guilty, when at the end of the episode, the person who is sitting on the stand, is the actual killer. He studied law at Harvard, based his law practice in Atlanta, Georgia, and lived in a modest farmhouse in a neighboring suburb. He is known to visit the scene of the crime to discover clues otherwise overlooked and come up with viable, alternative theories of the crime in question (usually murder). Matlock also has conspicuously finicky fashion sense; he generally appeared in court wearing a trademark light gray suit and, over the nine seasons, was seen behind the wheel of three generations of the Ford Crown Victoria— always an all-gray model (Andy Griffith always drove Ford products in his 1960's show, The Andy Griffith Show, as with Matlock). Some Mayberry alumni had guest shots on the drama: Don Knotts, Aneta Corsaut, Betty Lynn and Arlene Golonka.

Matlock was noted for his thrift and a fondness for hot dogs. After the series ended, his penchant for hot dogs was explained in the episode Murder Two of the television show Diagnosis: Murder. In it, Matlock blames Dr. Mark Sloan for recommending a disastrous investment in 8-track cartridges. Matlock subsequently invested (and lost) his savings of $5000, while he survived by wearing cheap suits and living on hot dogs.

Matlock's thriftiness, liking for hot dogs, and the demands he placed upon his investigators were often points of comic relief in the series. Andy Griffith's prior career as a comic often showed through in things that Matlock did or said.

Matlock, an American television lawful drama that stared Andy Griffith as a title role (Ben Matlock) aired NBC from September 23, 1986 to May 8, 1992. The drama was then replaced by the A-Team that aired ABC from November 5, 1992 to May 7, 1995.

The drama had a format that was synonymous to the CBS’s Perry Mason. This similarity is illustrated by Matlock finding and spotting the murderer and then facing him or her in a theatrical courtroom almost at the end of the show. However there is a difference in the procedures between Mason and Matlock. Mason typically exonerated his clients prior to hearing while Matlock usually vindicated his clients at trial.

Cable television network Hallmark Movie Channel and WGN America show the series on American Television. The show has also found hearts in Hallmark Channel. It aired on Hallmark channel but as a result of the gap in 2009, the series faced discontinuity, but the network still has rights to air the series.

The center character of the show is a widower Benjamin L.”Ben” Matlock. The character is played by Andy Griffith. The show is a well known, admired yet tetchy defense legal representation which is based on attorney “Big” Ben Baker from Young Harris, Georgia. The art of Matlock that separates him from other lawyers is his consistency to solve and finally win at trial almost every case he has worked on. Among them murder cases, where the lawyers are certain about their client’s role in murder, are specialty of Matlock. The typical trend of the show follows a person sitting on the bench and being questioned by Matlock. This is the person who is usually the actual killer.

The noticeable thing of Matlock was his economic management and love for hot dogs. This affection for hot dogs was later explained at the end of series in the episode Murder Two of Joyce Burditt’s Diagnosis. The episode explains the above mentioned fact very well. Matlock held Dr. Mark Sloan (played by Dick Van Dyke) responsible for advocating a catastrophic investment in 8-track cartridges. Matlock afterwards invested and lost his savings of 5000 dollars, so he then survived on cheap suits and lived in hot dogs.

The comic aspect of the series includes Matlock’s economic management of financials, liking of hot dogs and the hassle he placed upon his investigators.
