New poster for the final season of USA's Monk. The show returns Friday August 7th for it's eighth run. The show premiered back in the summer of 2002 and has remained one of the most successful original series on cable television with good ratings and plenty of award nominations and wins.
These days original series on cable networks are doing just as well as, if not better, than much of what the broadcast networks are offering and Monk was pretty much at the forefront of that movement. Monk was also the birthing place for the whole Characters Welcome campaign that pretty much defines USA network and all of it's original programming. We here at DVR Life are also really going to miss the Monk holiday special this year.
