On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

The Monk (1969) is a TV movie about a San Francisco private detective named Gus Monk, which was intended as a pilot for a series but failed. It seems to have no relation to the series about a person with the same profession, last name and hometown, Monk. It aired as part of the ABC Movie of the Week.
