    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.

    Shaloub said a long time ago that this had gone on longer than he planned.

    FWIW, Traylor is infinitely better than Bitty ever was. That changes saved the show from heading downhill. And Monk needs to be told off sometimes.

    They damn well better resolve the "Who Killed Trudy" storyline.

    I've been surprised for several years now that Shaloub has kept with Monk for this long. He's too good an actor for TV.

    How many years did he play "Antonio" on Wings? 6?

    This is the 7th season of Monk, and he's the star.

    That was before he came onto my radar. I didn't watch Wings on a regular basis. My statement stands though. He is too good for TV.

    He was in Men In Black, obviously the big screen didn't see a need for him.

    They did mention her dating George Clooney in the past. But they indicated that she keeps herself private, flying under the radar and people didn't even know about it. She is a single mother, don't know who the kid's dad is.

    To me finding out who killed Trudy is not as big a deal as finding out who the mother is on HIMYM.

    I also like her better than Bitty. Does anybody know why Bitty split like that? Based on her character's abrupt disappearing act it seems like she didn't give them any notice...

    The article hinted at a possible contract dispute. But I heard rumors in the past that she was difficult and disruptive on the set and that's why they got rid of her.
