Monk, starring Michael Richards
A few weeks before Seinfeld ended in 1998, costar Richards was looking for his next job and read the script for Monk, a comic police drama about a detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder. ABC wanted the show because Richards was interested. But the actor didn’t think the script was funny enough. He passed, and then so did ABC. USA picked it up, and Monk, starring Tony Shalhoub, became the network’s most watched show ever, winning three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series for Shalhoub. Richards instead chose to make The Michael Richards Show, which lasted for six episodes. Ironically, he played a detective.
