If you rolled your eyes yesterday at Tony Shalhoub’s sixth consecutive Emmy nomination for best actor in a comedy series, I’m thinking that maybe you just haven’t seen Monk. It returns tonight (USA, 9 p.m. ET) for a seventh season. Check out an old clip after the jump, featuring the late Stanley Kamel. (Monk’s new shrink will be played by Hector Elizondo.) If you still don’t get it, I give you permission to sound off in the comments section.
Psych, perhaps TV’s most underappreciated detective show (see: the ‘Psycho’ headline I found this morning), also returns tonight with new episodes (USA, 10 p.m. ET). If our classic PopWatch Duel between stars James Roday and Dulé Hill didn’t make you want to give it a shot, the clip after the jump might finally do the trick. (Or, this parody of American Idol? The show is riddled with pop culture references.)
Do we have Monk and Psych fans on PopWatch?
