Speaking of Paul Carr, in The Rockford Files season five "The Empty Frame" (1978) he played half of the first gay couple I ever saw portrayed on TV as just regular people who happened to be gay, and whose sexuality wasn't a major plot point or dwelt on in any way.
I remember that. The episode didn't actually acknowledge openly that they were lovers, of course, just friends and business partners who shared a dwelling, but the subtext was clear.
