Monk joins the MeTV lineup beginning Sunday, July 18
Monk teams with Columbo for a dynamic detective duo!
Love good mysteries? It doesn't take a detective to find them. Tune in to Sunday evenings on MeTV starting July 18 for two of television's greatest sleuths.
Columbo moves to a new time at 6PM | 5C, as we start from the very beginning with 1968 pilot film Prescription: Murder. Then, at 8PM | 7C, stay tuned for two hours of Monk.
Like Lt. Columbo, Adrian Monk has his quirks. After a reclusive three years following the mysterious death of his wife, the former San Francisco Police Officer emerges as a private detective, though hobbled by a number of compulsive habits and phobias. Tony Shalhoub (Wings, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) starred as Monk for eight seasons of the detective series. The role earned him three Emmy Awards for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and five further nominations. Yep — he was nominated every year the show aired!
Monk notably featured guests stars John Turturro (who also took home an Emmy for his appearance as Monk's brother), Jason Alexander, John Favreau, Howie Mandel, and country legend Willie Nelson. Speaking of music, Randy Newman also won awards for his memorable theme song.
Be sure to start from the very beginning and watch the two part premiere, "Mr. Monk and the Candidate," on Sunday, July 18 at 8PM | 7C.
