Monk to Clean Up His Final Murder Case in 2009


USA Network has announced its pick-up of an eighth and final season of Monk, to debut in the summer of 2009. The OCDetective series, fronted by three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub, will say goodbye with a 16-episode run.


"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."


Monk delivered series-high ratings last February, with 7.55 million viewers.

Wow, I've been watching from the beginning and it will be weird to see it end. They're probably running out of ideas by now, so it's a suitable time to see it go. I'm kind of hoping Monk and Natalie get together, I think it'd be cute =X
