Shalhoub on MONK: 'Everything does come to an end'

Actor Tony Shalhoub talks to Hollywood Exclusive about filming the final season of USA Network's Monk:
"We've all agreed there’s only so much you can mine out of this character. Nobody wants to move into the area where it starts to feel stale or the quality starts to drop. Since everything does have to come to an end, we want it to happen in the right way, where we’re in control of it, not a situation where the plug gets pulled. I think it honors the audience this way."
