This show was a turning point for the USANetwork. USA was previously a channel with a lineup consisting mainly of reruns, game shows, and Wrestling/{{WWE}} programs (and, of course, ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}''). ''Monk'' was the first major hit show for the network, launching what has become a string of popular, critically-acclaimed series.

''Monk'' is a DetectiveDrama that aired on Creator/USANetwork from 2002 to 2009. The show is about Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), a former San Francisco police inspector who suffered a [[FreakOut nervous breakdown]] after [[DisposableWoman the murder of his wife]], Trudy. He is a lifelong sufferer of [[SuperOCD Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder]] and has many [[AbsurdPhobia phobias]], and those obsessions became crippling after his breakdown, forcing his retirement; he recovers throughout the series, though he is never fully "cured". His OCPD[[note]]OCD is an anxiety disorder, OCPD a personality disorder. Not the same thing, and it's possible to have both. OCPD is not to be confused with COPD, which is a respiratory illness. Monk ''definitely'' has OCPD.[[/note]] is also the reason Monk was such a successful policeman; one of his compulsions is [[HyperAwareness paying amazing attention to details]].

Thanks to his breakdown, Monk was [[TurnInYourBadge discharged from his department]], but is frequently called in to consult on cases which baffle the police, often some kind of LockedRoomMystery, by his friend and former commander Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine). His [[DisabilitySuperpower disorders]] are part and parcel of his unique mind; without them, he wouldn't be able to solve these cases. Of course, the one case Monk's been trying to solve since his breakdown is Trudy's murder, and each season of the show brings him a little closer to finally solving the mystery behind her death (with the show's final season bringing the case to a close for good). Meanwhile, Monk is assisted in his investigations by his former nurse Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram), and, after Sharon's departure in the third season, by Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard).
