'Monk' closer most-watched episode


"Monk" ended its sixth season on a high note. The USA Network series averaged 6.9 million total viewers at 9 p.m. Friday, making it the show's most-watched episode ever, by 8%, according to Nielsen.

It also was "Monk's" second-most-watched episode in the adults 18-49 demo and the most-watched installment in adults 25-54 since August 2004. "Monk" also spurred USA to come out ahead of ABC and CBS in the time period in both demos.
