I've got Law & Order: SVU reruns on in the background as I write this, so...Law & Order: SVU. Well, quite a few episodes do involve murders, but this long-running series is about detective who specialize in handling sexual assault and child abuse cases.

This was done at least as far back as 1955 -- in The Seven Year Itch there's a woman (not Marilyn Monroe!) with glasses and a bun who's still unattractive with her glasses off and hair down.
