Holiday weekend TV is supposed to be awful unless you are a serious sports fan. According to conventional wisdom, reruns and lame specials dominate. Once again, conventional wisdom is wrong; there is a fairly strong lineup this weekend. Start tonight with a couple of holiday specials on cable channel USA with new episodes of Monk and Psych. On Monk, the defective detective (Tony Shalhoub) helps three homeless men investigate a murder. On Psych, Shawn (James Roday) helps a mall Santa. OK, I'm not thrilled about it, but I'll take holiday goop from a couple of fun series like these.

As scary Halloween movies go, Thirteen Ghosts' "Oh, please" factor is pretty darn high. When relatives suddenly inher- it a house from a mysterious uncle and walk in to realize it's made entirely of glass and has creepy looking Latin phrases etched on all its doors, they're not suspicious. They're not scared. The bux- om daughter even makes herself a solid candidate for the First to Perish award when she bovinely bats her eyes and says, "I sure hope the bathrooms are in the basement!" And, at a crucial point, as the group searches the labyrinthine basement for a lost boy, whaddya know, someone utters the fateful, plot-moving words of many a subpar horror flick: "This is going to take forever.

For a person with obsessive-compulsive disorder, someone who can't resist straightening a picture or cleaning a window smudge, you could scarcely find a more challenging - or unhygienic - surrounding than a murder scene. The blood, the bodily fluids, the rummaging of the scene! The disorder cost private detective Adrian Monk his job on the San Francisco police force, but the department still relies on his expertise at such scenes, despite his fear of germs, heights, crowds and general chaos.

Young, neurotic and living in New York. That was NBC's winning formula throughout the 1990s as it dominated the other networks and produced such popular - and sophisticated - sitcoms as Friends, Seinfeld, Mad About You and Caroline in the City. Desperate for a successor to Friends, the network tonight tries to squeeze one more hit out of the by-now well-worn premise with Committed. Instead, what emerges is a painful reminder of how few laughs there are in the NBC prime-time lineup. While there are promising moments in Committed, overall its producers and writers are trying too hard to recapture the magic of sitcoms gone by. Their timidity and lack of originality comes just as other networks - think Fox and Arrested Development - are developing new comedic models.

HOLLYWOOD -- Before Tony Shalhoub broke through as the obsessive-compulsive detective Monk, the Lebanese-American actor had compiled a long list of supporting characters with widely diverse names: Haddad (The Siege), Kwan (Galaxy Quest), Scarpacci (Wings), Reyes (Primary Colors) and Riedenschneider (The Man Who Wasn't There). This year, he has again been nominated for a Golden Globe, and he won his third Emmy for Monk, USA Network's highest-rated show, which on Jan. 19 will launch Season 5 1/2 . Lately, Shalhoub, 53, has been adding to his resume, not only as an actor but also as a producer and advocate, reaching back to his Arab-American roots.

Tony Shalhoub has spent so much time in Monk's head that the obsessive-compulsive detective has gotten into the actor's head. "I never had a problem shaking hands," Shalhoub said. "Now I do." As the USA series enters its fourth season, it hasn't quite gotten to the stage where Shalhoub whips out a tissue to wipe his hands after shaking someone else's, Shalhoub said. "But I do have the ugly thoughts." Monk's ugly thoughts, a product of every conceivable phobia, make for some of the most beautifully unconventional detective work this side of Columbo.
