TONY SHALHOUB STARS IN USA NETWORK'S HIT SERIES "MONK" WHICH CONTINUES ITS SIXTH SEASON WITH ALL NEW EPISODES ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 11 AT 9/8C

Guest stars include Howie Mandel, Dan Castelleneta, Victoria Tennant, Eve Gordon,Cathy Cahlin Ryan, Jonathan Chase, Peter Stormare, Stanley Kamel, Emmy Clarke and more

NEW YORK -- December 19, 2007 -- MONK, the critically acclaimed original series starring Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG award winner Tony Shalhoub, continues its sixth season with six all-new episodes on USA Network on Friday, January 11, 2008 at 9/8c. MONK remains one of the highest-rated original scripted series in basic cable history.

Tony Shalhoub ("Big Night," "Wings," "Men in Black," "Cars") has earned three Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and two SAG Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of Adrian Monk, a brilliant detective who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Monk's psychological disorder costs him his position as a legendary homicide detective on the San Francisco Police force. Due to the tragic unsolved murder of his wife, Monk has developed an abnormal fear of germs, heights, crowds and virtually everything else, which provides an unusual challenge to solving crimes � not to mention his day-to-day existence.

Traylor Howard ("Two Guys and a Girl," "Me, Myself and Irene"), Ted Levine ("Heat," "Moby Dick") and Jason Gray-Stanford ("Taken," "A Beautiful Mind") also star.

Guest-starring this season are Howie Mandel ("Deal or No Deal"), Dan Castelleneta ("The Simpsons"), Victoria Tennant ("Scrubs," "LA Story"), Eve Gordon ("Grey's Anatomy," "Felicity"), Cathy Cahlin Ryan ("The Shield"), Jonathan Chase ("Veronica Mars," "One on One"), Peter Stormare ("Prison Break"), Scott Glenn ("The Bourne Ultimatum"), as well as Emmy Clarke ("My House in Umbria," "Fur") as Julie Teeger and Stanley Kamel ("Inland Empire," "Mister Sterling") as Dr. Charles Kroger.

As season six continues, Monk infiltrates a cult to solve the murder of a former member but gets lured into the fold himself, leaving Natalie, Stottlemeyer and Lt. Disher to try and extract their friend; Monk takes up painting as a hobby and finds surprising success considering his lack of talent, leading the rest to wonder about his patron's real motive; Monk's bank is robbed and with one of his most prized possessions missing from its safety box, he stops at nothing to solve the crime but lands him and his friends in a tight spot; a serial killer with a penchant for offing victims named Julie Teeger finds Monk on the case to catch the culprit before he works his way to Natalie's Julie; and Monk goes on the lam in a two-part episode when he is accused of a murder in a small town and must prove his innocence while trying to piece together the connection the victim had to Monk's late wife's murder.

MONK is executive produced by David Hoberman ("Raising Helen," "Bringing Down the House," "The Negotiator"), Andy Breckman ("Saturday Night Live," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Rat Race"), Tony Shalhoub, Randy Zisk ("House," "Without a Trace') and Tom Scharpling ("The Best Show on WFMU"). MONK is from NBC Universal Television Studio in association with Mandeville Films and Touchstone Television.

New this January on the Official MONK site at http://Monk.USANetwork.com, loyal fans will be able to ask Lt. Randy Disher "everyday guy" questions and watch his responses in the new "Ask Disher" video feature. The online experience continues as viewers turn the camera on themselves by re-creating classic Monk scenes to share with other Monk-o-Philes. Also new on the site, fans can Mash-Up their own Monk Video Promo, and discover if they would cut it as Mr. Monk's assistant by taking the latest Monk Profiler quiz. And as always, fan favorites like Full Episodes, Monk-o-Phile Trivia and the chance to win Monk Bobbleheads can be found at the official site.
