The Farmer's Daughter (sitcom, starring Inger Stevens and William Windom)

    [loosely based upon a 1947 motion picture of the same name
     which starred Loretta Young and Joseph Cotton; the premise
     of both movie and TV series was a young woman from rural
     Minnesota moves to Washington, D.C. and gets a job as a 
     housekeeper to a widowed the movie this
     leads to romance; during the 3-year run of the TV series
     the affection between the two had to be stretched out 
     until the third year, when they finally got married and
     were husband and wife; this was also the last season the
     series was on...perhaps the ratings dropped as the result]
