TV Tonight: Monk and Psych Get Some Holiday Spirit



Apparently, this is the week of one-off holiday specials on cable. Following Monday's holiday installment of The Closer, tonight brings seasonal episodes of Monk and Psych on USA.

First up is "Mr. Monk and the Man Who Shot Santa," which finds Monk looking like the enemy of holiday cheer after he shoots a man dressed as a mall Santa who was throwing toys off a roof. Monk just wants to figure out what the man was really doing there, but being painted as a Santa-shooting bad guy in the press interferes with his mission.

The plot of "Gus' Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy," meanwhile, is about what you'd expect from a title like that. The episode finds the Psych boys settling in for a good, old-fashioned Christmas . . . until a neighbor turns up murdered and the evidence points to Gus' dad.

Hey, nothing says "happy holidays!" like murder and mayhem, right? To check out previews for the two episodes, just read more
