Advertisements There is an article in the Leisure & Arts Section of today's Wall Street Journal about Monk's Traylor Howard "Natalie Teeger." I was sad to see that this summer will be the final season of the show. No reason was given for this. Didn't sound like she wanted out, so I wonder if Tony Shaloub (spelling ??) does. I sure do hope they solve the who killed Trudy storyline and not leave us hanging. Anyway, she was saying that the fans get mad at her for things she says to Monk but that he can be mean to her and nobody says anything about it. Momk and the producers credit her for coming in and saving the show after Bitty Schram (?? spelling) left after the thrid season. There are fans out there who want a romance between Natalie and Monk but I just don't see it.
