Special Holiday Monk Episode

Monk - TV Show

Attention all Monk fans! A special, all-new holiday episode of Monk premieres this Friday night on USA. This will be the only new episode of Monk until January 2009 when the second half of season seven begins.

Detective Adrian Monk believes in such things as hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray and color-coordinated jelly beans. But does Mr. Monk believe in miracles? Find out as a special episode of Monk arrives just in time for the holidays. Catch the premiere of “Mr. Monk and The Miracle” Friday, November 28 at 9/8C only on USA Network.

In other news, USA Network has announced that Monk’s eighth and final season will debut in summer of 2009. This will be a sixteen-episode season which will bring the whole series to a close.

“We want to build to a spectacular conclusion for this wonderful show,” USA Network’s executive vice president of original programming, Jeff Wachtel, said in making the announcement. ” By many measures, Monk is the most successful series in the history of basic cable…. Our fans have been extremely dedicated, and Season 8 should prove to be a very satisfying reward.”

This is a great show, and I will be sorry to see it end, but I am glad they are at least planning for it, so that they can work towards bringing the story arc to a satisfying conclusion.

    Excellent! Thank you for the reminder! I want to watch this. Monk is absolutely hysterical. Of course, the fact that the show mocks “retentive” habits plays to some of my own habits. ;^)

    John – I didn’t know you were a Monk fan! I have this one set to record, although it looks like they will be playing it all weekend long anyways.

  3. Bethany says:

    We are Monk fans, too, but alas, we don’t have TV anymore. The kids pay for the cable during Red Sox season, so no TV now until Spring. When our oldest is home, he pays for cable during Celtics season but he is away for school and won’t be back till Christmas. I guess we wait for the DVD. 🙁

  4. Bethany says:

    A very kind friend taped this for us and sent it as a surprise in the mail. So we got to see it after all. 🙂

  5. Ray Fowler says:

    Well, that was very nice of them. 🙂  I am glad you got to see it. Monk is just too much fun.
