Tony Shaloub

Tony Shalhoub talks post-Monk

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 9th 2009 7:02PM
If I were in Tony Shalhoub's shoes right now and I was facing the end of a long-running show that helped make me a star, I would spend just about everyday sitting in a corner in the fetal position, rocking back and forth and mumbling to myself.

But that's not Tony. The Monk star had a nice, candid chat with the folks from Sling about Monk's past impact on television and the future of his career, which includes a few films and some interesting choices for producing. As for another Monk reunion, well, Tony says "never say never."

Sharona returning to Monk

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 25th 2009 9:05AM
The final season of the show that made USA famous for something other than playing non-stop reruns of Wings is turning into a reunion special. Or should I say a special reunion?

Bitty Schram, the actress who played Sharona, Adrian Monk's original partner in fighting crime on Monk, will return for an episode sometime during the show's eighth and final season.

This will mark her first appearance on the comedy-mystery since she mysteriously disappeared from the show halfway through the third season. It should also make for an interesting close to a series that has redefined the way the higher channels on the dial create and produce their own series.

Tony Shalhoub and Hector Elizondo talk about season seven of Monk

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 8th 2008 1:21PM

Tony Shaloub as Detected Monk. The show's seventh season begins July 18thThere are two things you may or may not believe about Monk. One is the fact that it is now entering its seventh season on USA Network (season premiere on Friday, July 18th). The other is that the series will be celebrating its 100th episode this year, making it the grandaddy of the 'Characters Welcome' slate of original programming on the network.

This will be an interesting season for Mr. Monk. With the death of Stanley Kamel back in April, Monk will be getting a new doctor this year in the form of Hector Elizondo. In addition to that, Monk's search for his wife's killer will intensify after a big piece of the puzzle was revealed during last season's finale. Throw in guest appearances by Robert Loggia, Brad Garrett and Eric McCormick, and this could be a big season for the show.

Lindsay Lohan bows out of Emmy consideration ... really

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 14th 2008 1:24PM
ugly betty llEither an Emmy isn't worth very much these days, or Hollywood actresses are finding that the publicity from spurning a nomination is worth more than the nomination itself. First Grey's Anatomy star -- and last year's Emmy winner -- Katherine Heigl removed her name from consideration for an Emmy in 2008, and now another has followed suit.

Lindsay Lohan is not submitting her Ugly Betty performance for Emmy consideration. What? You don't remember Lindsay's performance, those few minutes of a flashback when Betty recalls being used as a dodge ball target in high school? Yeah, Lindsay really put in Emmy-worthy work there!

This is so ridiculous when it comes to Lindsay. There was no chance she'd be nominated, so removing her name is a stunt. On the other hand, Heigl's move is a real slap in the face to the writers of Grey's Anatomy.

Monk gets a new psychiatrist

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 30th 2008 9:22AM
Hector ElizondoWith the untimely death of actor Stanley Kamel, USA Network and the producers of Monk were compelled to find another actor to play a psychiatrist for the OCD detective. TV Guide has gotten the exclusive word that Hector Elizondo has been cast as Monk's new shrink. The veteran actor -- you'll recognize him from every Garry Marshall movie from Pretty Woman to The Princess Diaries -- was most recently on Cane. As Michael Ausiello points out, if Hector's doing Monk, chances are that CBS has officially canned Cane, even if they haven't announced it yet. %Gallery-21825%

Stump the King - Wings

by Paul Goebel, posted Jan 21st 2008 8:03AM

The cast of WingsI need a little help this week...

"There was an episode of Wings where it was kind of an homage to Casablanca or Dragnet. This was a very funny episode but I don't know what season or episode. Two lines that may help you out. In the episode they all talk in a monotone voice. Joe (Tim Daly) says at one point "Why the hell am I talking like this". Also, someone says to Antonio, "You Scrapachi?" mispronouncing his last name. If you can help please do. Regards, Ian McCurdy"

Monk gets two more seasons

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 13th 2006 6:36PM
MonkAs Bob mentioned, Monk kicks off its fifth season this evening on USA. I'm a late comer to the show and only started watching it recently. Why I didn't start watching this dry, witty show when it began is really anyone's guess. Nevertheless, I've been using the power of Tivo to catch up. In fact, my Tivo is currently in the process of recording a Monk marathon on USA. Monkheads both new and old will also be happy to know that USA has also bought a sixth season of the series, so we'll be able to follow the adventures of the obsessive-compulsive detective who hates being touched for at least the next couple of years.
