monk and psych'Monk' and 'Psych'
(9PM & 10PM, USA)
USA's Friday night characters are back in action, and for Monk, that means a family reunion.

His half-brother, Jack. Jr., is on the lam after he escapes from prison, and Jack makes his way to casa de Monk for help. Someone's framed him, he claims, and he wants his OCD bro to help him crack the case.

Meanwhile, 'Psych' buds Shawn and Gus are on the hot on the trail of a murderer ... a murderer whose victim is Shabby the Sea Lion. And their lead suspect: A TV animal show host played by the patron saint of Jumping the Shark, Ted McGinley. Be careful, 'Psych' dudes; he's killed before.
