"Monk" hit the big time on its way out.

The long-running USA Network detective series starring Tony Shalhoub enjoyed a series finale Friday, Dec. 4 that attracted nearly 9.5 million viewers, a record high for the most-watched regular drama series episode on basic cable, according to Variety.

"It's truly gratifying to have been on the air for eight years and to finish the run with a beautiful episode that people wanted to be a part of," said Mandeville Films' David Hoberman, an executive producer on the show. "'Monk' has achieved a lot in its eight years on the air -- this being one of them."

In the finale, San Francisco cop-turned-private eye Adrian Monk (Shalhoub) finally solves the case of wife's murder, a mystery that had been haunting him for the entire series.

Shalhoub won three Emmys for his work on "Monk."
