Monk CastIf a show is good enough to get nominated for an Emmy, why not watch it for hours on end while you forget forever what the sun looks like?

USA Networks has announced that it's reaching around and patting itself enthusiastically on the back for its Emmy nomination collection with a marathon event of Monk, House and Law & Order: SVU. The chain of would-be red carpet winners runs Friday, September 4 through Sunday, September 6 and includes the episodes of each show up for awards.

Monk is all USA's baby and garnered 16 total Emmy nominations including seven nominations and three wins for Tony Shalhoub (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series).

House is Fox and SVU is shared with NBC. But it's one big happy Emmy family for USA.

House (which is celebrating its 100th episode milestone) is the winner of three Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has also got 17 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Drama Series and three for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series).

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has received a total of 22 Emmy nominations including six for Mariska Hargitay (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series) and one for Christopher Meloni (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series).

Why no episode recap of last night's "Monk"? It was one of the funniest episodes I've seen in some time. Tony Shaloub was awesome.

World leaders on Wednesday expressed condolences over the expiry of U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy. The septuagenarian was struggling with brain cancer for the past one year and finally succumbed to it. He was 77. Senate is the upper house of the U.S. Congress, to which two members are elected from each state of US by popular vote for a six-year term. A member of senate is referred to as senator. He and former late US president John Kennedy were siblings(brothers).
UNO general secretary Ban's in his condolence message has said that Edward was not merely a friend of VIP's but also moved freely with the downtrodden people. This was a testimony to the greatness of Edward. Osama lamented that an important chapter in the history of US has come to an end. Obama placed an order that the flag of the United States shall be flying at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings to as a mark of mourning the great leaders death. Some former U.S. presidents too have mourned for his death
