Have always loved Tony Shalhoub's work, and will try to see this. I hope he'll go on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me again -- his appearance was one of that show's high points.

Meanwhile, everybody should read Moss Hart's book Act One. It's drop-dead brilliant.

I was the one who uploaded the rare video of George S. Kaufman to YouTube. I'm thrilled that it was put to some constructive use!

"Monk" is/was possibly my favorite TV series after Columbo, Rome and Breaking Bad of all times. I've seen every episode at least a dozen times and continue to watch reruns every week to this very day. I wish Tony a lot of luck in other ventures and venues but for me in my mind he remains Monk forever just as Sean Connery remains 007. I only hope Tony will bring the series back with most of the caste in a few years. I've been watching television since 1950 and Monk is a show that epitomizes some of the most edifying entertainment TV has ever brought me.
